3 Premier League wingers Wolves could target if Adama Traore departs

Wolves winger Adama Traore has been linked with an exit from Molineux recently.

It’s been claimed Leeds United are interested in the Spaniard (90min), and it’s also been reported (Goal) that the 24-year-old has been stalling over signing a new deal.

It is not out of the question that he could leave in the summer if an appropriate bid is made.

Given his potential, Wolves will probably have to prepare for other teams coming sniffing.

Assuming Wolves can retain their Premier League status at the end of 2020/21, here are three wingers currently playing in the Premier League the club could perhaps target if they decide to cash in on Traore…

Callum Hudson-Odoi

There is a lot of competition at Chelsea which means Callum Hudson-Odoi doesn’t always play.

He has often been linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge, and perhaps Wolves should consider an approach in the summer if they find themselves needing a replacement for Traore.

Talented Hudson-Odoi has all the tools to become a top Premier League winger and is blessed with enviable pace and trickery. He just needs to play, and at Wolves he would likely get the minutes he needs.

Wilfried Zaha

The Crystal Palace talisman has been at Selhurst Park for years after failing to make the grade at Manchester United, and one gets the feeling he is ready to move on.

He was strongly linked with a move to Arsenal before the Gunners eventually landed Nicolas Pepe, and maybe Wolves can see about a possible swoop.

He’s capable of playing anywhere in attack, and has proven himself to be a match-winner over the years in the English top-flight.

The 28-year-old would likely bring goals on a more regular basis than Traore has during his time at Molineux.

Allan Saint-Maximin

Saint-Maximin is usually always Newcastle’s bright spark when he plays.

Like Traore he sometimes lacks consistency, but the weapons he possesses make him an undeniably dangerous player.

The £16.5 million signing from Nice (BBC Sport) – branded ‘mesmerising’ by Magpies legend Malcolm Macdonald (Goal) – is extremely difficult to contain when he’s in full flow, and if Newcastle go down he would be well worth going in pursuit of.

He signed a long contract last year, but even if Newcastle stay up, the player could well agitate for a move given the club’s struggles.
