Wolves are ready to accept under £20 million for Adama Traore this summer, with Leeds United again showing interest.

According to TEAMtalk, Wanderers are preparing to sell the Spaniard, who won’t sign a new contract at Molineux.

Traore’s current deal expires in a year, meaning the club are under pressure to offload him this summer.

And the club would apparently take less than £20 million for him, with the star having endured a frustrating loan spell with Barcelona.

Wolves gambled in January by sending Traore back to his former club with negotiating an obligation to buy.

The agreed upon an option, but it quickly became apparent that Barca would not be triggering it.

The idea of a swap deal involving Francisco Trincao has been routinely floated. But Wolves apparently don’t want him permanently after an underwhelming loan spell.

So it’s looking like Wolves will attempt to sell Traore to another club, and Leeds United are again being linked.

Apparently Victor Orta will attempt to sign the star again this summer. He has succeeded in that once before, buying him from Aston Villa for Middlesbrough in 2016.

TEAMtalk suggest that Leeds could be turning to Traore as a potential replacement for Raphinha.

The Brazilian has recently been linked with a move to Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Wolves need to sell Adama Traore as soon as possible, as Leeds show interest

Wolves must get to work on the sale of Traore.

His stint with Barcelona might make it difficult for the club to get close to £20 million.

Wolves paid £18 million for Traore back in 2018, so perhaps taking a small hit on him would not be such a terrible outcome given the situation with his contract.
