Report: Wolves could target Paulo Dybala to replace exit-linked Adama Traore

Wolves could make a move for Paulo Dybala, in a stunning claim from Calciomercato.

The Italian publication believes the club could begin a pursuit over the Argentine international if Adama Traore leaves the club for big money.

Supposedly there is interest in the Spaniard from German champions Bayern Munich, who are said to be willing to pay Traore’s €80 million/£72 million valuation.

The claim comes amid other reports that Traore is stalling over signing a new deal at Molineux.

There have been whispers about the 24-year-old becoming the next individual to commit his future after Nuno, Raul Jimenez, Conor Coady, Max Kilman and Pedro Neto – but it seems there could be work to do over Traore.

Juventus attacker Dybala is a high-profile name in European football, known for his brilliant technical quality and versatility.

The South American has been with Juve since 2015 and has scored 96 goals and made 38 assists in 234 appearances.

A highly unlikely move

This would be a hugely surprising move if it came to fruition.

The problem lies in Bayern’s supposed interest in Traore.

The Germans only recently signed Leroy Sane who is a very similar player, and the Bavarians also have Serge Gnabry in their ranks.

That said, it is not impossible that another side could bid big for Traore, who may be considering his future carefully at this point given his loss of starter status at Molineux.

Dybala would be an unbelievable coup but it just doesn’t seem likely, especially given the massive wages he’d likely demand.
