Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez TEAMtalk

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admits he does not know if Liverpool-linked winger Adama Traore will leave the club this summer.

A long-standing link with the Reds refuses to go away, resurfacing after his performance against West Ham on Saturday.

Traore, who appeared off the bench, set up goals for Raul Jimenez and Pedro Neto in Wolves’ 2-0 victory.

Asked if the 24-year-old will still be at Molineux next season, Nuno replied: “I don’t know. He is here now and he has trained well today and he is ready to go tomorrow.

“It is day by day, no speculation, and just focus on what we have to do and prepare for Bournemouth.”

Traore has developed a fearsome reputation as an impact substitute.

The former Barcelona trainee is pushing strongly for a starting place against Bournemouth on Wednesday. But Nuno refused to be drawn on his team selection.

He said: “He must keep working. Adama is a special player, he is unique, and I think when he is on the pitch he already has an impact on the game.

 

“Of course he has things to improve and then after that it is our decision how we use players and manage the team in the game plan and the moment.

“The momentum and the moment we are in after three months of activity. We have a lot of things to judge on and try to make the right decisions.”

Wolves return to Molineux on Wednesday to play for the first time since March 7, when they drew 0-0 with Brighton.

SALAH, ROBERTSON FIT FOR LIVERPOOL

Andy Robertson Liverpool TEAMtalk

Liverpool are also in action on Wednesday, hosting Crystal Palace in their first game back at Anfield since the restart.

Jurgen Klopp‘s team cannot win the Premier League title against the Eagles, however, after Manchester City’s thrashing of Burnley on Monday night.

They will be boosted by the return of Mohamed Salah and Andy Robertson, who missed Sunday’s draw with Everton.
