Wolves transfer news: Adama Traore wants higher wage offer from Galatasaray after club make £2.5 million loan bid

Wolves winger Adama Traore is said to have been left unimpressed by Galatasaray’s wage offer.

It was reported earlier today that the Turkish giants were interested in the 26-year-old, as well as James Rodriguez.

Now, Sporx bring an update on the situation and claim Gala and Wolves are in talks.

Supposedly, they offered Wolves £2.5 million to take Traore on loan. Wolves are said to have found that offer too low and wanted them to increase it.

Gala have apparently offer Traore £2.3 million-a-year.

That is a slight increase on the £2.1 million-a-year he supposedly takes home at Wolves.

But Traore is said to want £3.4 million-a-year net. Gala are said to be in talks with both Traore and Wolves and are trying to lower both figures.

The Turkish transfer window closes tomorrow, so time is of the essence for Gala if they want to land Traore.

It remains to be seen if Wolves will allow Traore to depart.

Realistically, there would be no benefit whatsoever to loaning Traore.

The transfer window closed last Thursday for English clubs, so Wanderers would not be able to replace him adequately.

Wolves would be mad to offload Adama Traore amid interest from Galatasaray

It would be a major surprise if Wolves allowed Traore to leave.

The Turkish window may still be open, but Wolves must resist Gala’s efforts to sign the star.

It just wouldn’t make any sense for Wolves. Traore is needed for squad depth, and has the potential to be a gamechanger for Bruno Lage.

There would even be little point in selling him. At this point, there is much more value in keeping Traore for the final year of his contract.
