Wolves transfer news: FC Metz president says Boubacar Traore wants to leave

Wolves could yet make a move for Boubacar Traore, with the president of FC Metz stating that the midfielder wants to leave.

Less than 48 hours remain in the 2022 summer transfer window, and it could be about to get very busy for Wolves.

Sasa Kalajdzic is coming in, and he could be followed by either Craig Dawson or Jason Denayer.

And a number of players could be heading for the exit such as Willy Boly, Hwang Hee-chan and Leander Dendoncker.

One player that has been linked Wolves for a while now is Traore.

Wanderers reportedly first had an interest in him back in January. The Sun claimed the club were lining up an £8 million move.

And the club have been linked with him again towards the end of the summer window.

A couple of weeks ago it was claimed that Wolves had actually made a couple of different offers for Traore.


And last weekend, the player was not involved for Metz for their game against Dijon FCO. Traore was also nowhere to be seen last night as Metz defeated Rodez AF 4-1.

An exit could well be on the cards following comments made by the club’s president Bernard Serin.

He said (as quoted by France Bleu): “He wants to leave and we are not satisfied with the amount proposed. But with the English clubs, the negotiations can last until the last moment.”

Good potential for Wolves to sign Boubacar Traore, as president says he wants to leave Metz

Time is ticking, but this is an encouraging development in Wolves’ reported pursuit of Traore.

Wolves need to work to come to an agreement with Metz. But the player wanting to leave them does put them under a bit of pressure.

Wolves, of course, have just loaned out Luke Cundle to Swansea City.

That might indicate that youngster Traore could well be on his way to Molineux.

And it would be an exciting addition, with the Malian dynamo a player with big potential.
