Wolves transfer news: Boubacar Traore wants to join Wolves

Wolves have received a boost in their reported pursuit of Boubacar Traore, with the player said to be keen to make the move.

According to Socios FC Metz, the Mali international is closing on a move to Molineux.

The outlet claims the move is actually now in its final stages.

The player’s representatives have apparently negotiated a salary with Wolves.

The transfer, it’s stated, should be closed with the coming days.

It was only reported yesterday evening by Republicain-Lorrain that Wolves had made their move for Traore.

Supposedly, the club made two offers for the talented 20-year-old. One was €6 million (£5 million) and €8 million (6.7 million) for a permanent transfer.

The other was apparently a loan offer, with an obligation to buy for €10 million (£8.4 million) obligation to buy.

Traore has been with Metz since 2019, and made his first-team debut for the club in May 2021.

He has gone on to make 31 appearances for the club.

Wolves were linked with an £8 million summer move for Traore back in January of this year.

Great news for Wolves if it’s true Boubacar Traore wants to join

Hopefully there is some truth in this report that Traore is ready to make a move to Wolves.

The youngster has really exciting potential and is the athletic, ball carrying type of midfielder Wanderers do not currently have.

He would be a really good option to have in the squad. Especially since the tendency is for Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho – two technicians – to start the bulk of the games for Wolves.

It remains to be seen if Wolves officials can get the deal over the line.

But it seems like it could perhaps be close. Whether it gets done and Traore gets registered in time for the game against Fulham though is another thing.
