Wolves transfer news: Napoli interested in signing Adama Traore

Napoli are reportedly keeping an eye on Adama Traore, with the winger set to leave Wolves next summer.

There have been no indications recently that he will sign an extension, although the arrival of Julen Lopetegui may not make his exit a complete formality.

There’s every chance he could end up thriving under Lopetegui and enjoying his football so much that he will sign a new deal after all. The new head coach has already said he’d like Traore to extend.

But at the moment, Traore stands to leave as a free agent next summer.

It’s even possible he could depart in January. But Wolves likely won’t sanction a mid-season exit given the current predicament.

Many clubs would take Traore on a free.

And according to journalist Alfredo Pedulla via his official website, Napoli are keen to do just that.

Napoli have supposedly appreciated him for a long time, and could finally make a move for him next year.

Napoli are currently flying high in Serie A, sitting top of the table by eight points.

Luciano Spalletti’s side are still unbeaten in the league, winning 13 of their first 15 games.

They’re also into the last 16 of the Champions League.

They are undoubtedly one of the most exciting teams in Europe to watch this season having already plundered 37 goals in Serie A, with a further 20 coming in the Champions League.

Wolves winger Adama Traore could be absolutely amazing for Napoli

Many Wolves fans are hoping Traore will change his mind regarding extending his contract at Wolves.

In recent months the £18 million signing has reminded everyone at Wolves just how dangerous he is. He is truly an exhilarating player, and is someone you pay to watch specifically.

It remains to be seen if things will change going forwards.

But right now it does feel like he will be moving on – and he could be absolutely amazing for a team like Napoli.

The Italian giants are a superb team under Spalletti that play cracking football that is attacking and direct.

The pace of the football in Italy is slower compared to England, and this is something that could really help the electric Traore to thrive.
