Wolves transfer news: Wolves make two offers for Metz midfielder Boubacar Traore

Bruno Lage is still looking to land a new midfielder before the summer window closes.

So far, Nathan Collins and Goncalo Guedes have joined the club to provide depth in defence and attack.

But it has a been a summer of frustration so far in terms of bolstering the engine room, and fans are desperate to see a new face to compete with the likes of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker.

Apparently Wanderers have now approached Metz over Traore.

And the club are said to have actually made two different offers for the star.

The first offer is thought to be €6 million (£5 million) and €8 million (6.7 million) for a permanent transfer.

And the second is said to be a loan deal which would include a €10 million (£8.4 million) obligation to buy.

Metz are currently mulling over the offers from Wolves.

Traore has actually been linked with a move to Molineux before. Back in January of this year, The Sun claimed that Wanderers made an £8 million swoop.

Boubacar Traore would be an exciting signing for Wolves

Perhaps this is something that could have wheels given the player has been linked with Wolves before.

Collins and Guedes both ended up signing for the club after initial links, before the trail seemingly went cold.

Wolves need to add a bit of dynamism to their midfield. And Traore is that kind of player.

He’s tenacious and physical, and would be a really good alternative option to the technicians that are Neves and Moutinho.

He certainly fits the transfer policy of being a young player with major potential resale value.
