The future of Adama Traore at Wolverhampton Wanderers has been up in the air this year.
The winger is supposedly seen as one of a few players who could bring in big money for the club, along with Pedro Neto and Ruben Neves.
The club have reportedly been trying to tie him down to a longer contract.
It was claimed that talks were no longer deadlocked in May, but there seemingly hasn’t been any movement since then.
It remains to be seen what will happen but, arguably Wolves stand a decent chance of keeping hold of the 25-year-old.
Traore went to Euro 2020 with Spain and some felt he might have placed himself in the shop window.
International tournaments can undoubtedly have that effect.
In the end though for Traore, he just wasn’t fancied by Luis Enrique.
The star was handed just 15 minutes or so against Slovakia (when the game was totally dead and buried), and didn’t feature in any of Spain’s other games.
No shop window effect
Traore pretty much not featuring could well improve Wolves’ chances of keeping him this summer.
Had he been playing regularly for Spain, it’s likely he would have been drawing more attention.
But instead, players such as Dani Olmo and Mikel Oyarzabal were catching the eye.
Teams could well still come calling for Traore.
But surely there will be less clamour than if he had been a regular pick for Enrique.
