Wolves are said to be looking to hold talks with Adama Traore after the summer transfer window about a possible contract extension.

The transfer window closes next Tuesday and in the past week or so, Traore has been the subject of heavy speculation.

Tottenham Hotspur are interested in the player.

Nuno Espirito Santo obviously knows the player extremely well, and is said to want to work with him again.

But according to a new report from the Telegraph today, Wolves are standing firm over the star.

The club are said to be adamant they don’t want to sell. They have already rejected a £5 million loan proposal from Spurs.

It comes after Wolves boss Bruno Lage said he thinks the Spaniard will remain with the club.

News of Wolves eyeing fresh contract talks should be welcomed.

 

It is clear that £18 million signing Traore (BBC Sport) is someone that carries a huge threat, so retaining him is important.

Although he ultimately may not agree to an extension, it potentially shows Wolves are looking to protect his value.

Traore looking likely to stay

This report from The Telegraph, following Lage’s comments the other night, does seemingly indicate that Traore will be staying put.

Obviously it’s not out of the question a huge bid could come in.

But even if that were to happen, it is surely too late in the window for Wolves to land an adequate replacement.

Hopefully, Wolves are successful in their mission to hand Traore a new contract.
