Wolves seemingly face competition for Ajax striker Lassina Traore, with a report claiming Fiorentina are now in the mix.

La Nazione (via Calciomercato) are claiming the Serie A outfit are on the tale of the 20-year-old, who has been making waves over in the Eredivise this season.

Traore has gabbed eight goals in 16 appearances, with five of those coming in one game against VVV-Venlo back in October.

The 12-cap Burkina Faso international is viewed as a top prospect at the club, and his qualities and potential are seemingly appreciated by Fiorentina.

 

It is not stated whether they will make a move for him during the current transfer window, but it is thought Ajax do not want to sell their talented young star.

That said, there has been some talk about Christian Kouame potentially leaving the club, so perhaps Fiorentina as looking to prepare for life after the Ivory Coast international, with Leeds United reportedly having made some enquiries (La Nazione).

As well as Wolves (De Telegraaf, via Voetbal Primeur) and Fiorentina, it’s also been claimed that West Ham are looking at Traore – the Hammers have just sold Sebastien Haller and have clear need for attacking reinforcements.
