According to AS in Spain, the Blues are hoping to land Achraf Hakimi before anyone else.

The Morocco international enjoyed an outstanding campaign with Inter Milan last season.

Paris Saint-Germain are also in the hunt for the full-back, so Chelsea potentially have their work cut out.

Should they fail to land Hakimi, then it’s reported the club will make a move on Traore as an alternative.

Thomas Tuchel is said to big fan of the 25-year-old. He supposedly sees him as a good fit to play wing-back.

Traore has been at Molineux for three years now, after moving from Middlesbrough for £18 million in 2018 (BBC Sport).

Despite not always being consistent, Traore has wowed at Wolves, and many fans are hoping he stays put beyond the current transfer window.

There’s a chance that he could take his game to a new level under Bruno Lage.

Potentially the shackles could be released, which is an exciting prospect.

It was recently claimed talks over a new deal had restarted, so hopefully that means he is looking to remain in the Black Country a little longer yet.
