Wolverhampton Wanderers have a big decision to make in January.

They were successful in keeping Adama Traore during the last transfer window.

Several clubs reportedly had interest in the Spaniard, with Tottenham Hotspur the most heavily linked towards the end of the window.

But Wolves managed to hang on to the 25-year-old, but fans know the situation is slightly precarious.

At the moment, Traore is yet to commit his long-term future to the club.

Bruno Lage recently stated that he felt Traore was happy at the club.

But that new contract remains unsigned, which is a bit of a concern.

But perhaps it doesn’t need to be, for a new star has emerged at Molineux.

Hwang Hee-chan’s arrival in the Black Country has been cause for real excitement at Molineux.

 

So far the South Korean international has really impressed on loan from RB Leipzig, and is already the team’s top scorer.

It may well be that his discovery will help Wolves come to a decision to sell Traore in January.

If there is no chance of Traore agreeing to sign a new contract, then he probably needs selling in January.

Waiting until beyond the winter window would mean the club would not be able to command as much money.

It is not an ideal situation, but in Hwang, Wolves do already seem to have something of a replacement for the Spaniard.

Hwang has brilliant pace and power just like Traore, but seems much more composed in front of goal. That is something Traore has often struggled with during his time at the club.

With Pedro Neto set to return before the next transfer window, it would not be too much of a surprise if the club felt comfortable cashing in.
