Adama Traore is in line to sign a new contract with Wolves, but it won’t end his hopes of moving to a bigger club, according to reports.
Traore has endured a difficult campaign compared to the 2019-20 season. He was one of the most dangerous wingers in the Premier League last term but his output has dried up this time around. But he remains a player of top quality and big clubs will still be keeping an eye on him.
For example, he has regularly been linked with Liverpool. They signed his former teammate Diogo Jota instead last summer, but Traore could still be on their radar.
The 25-year-old has also been mentioned as a possible target for Leeds as they look to consolidate in the Premier League.
But according to Goal, he is now on the verge of signing a new contract at Molineux.
Traore’s existing deal is due to run out in 2023. He had been delaying putting pen to paper on an extension when he lost his place in the team earlier this season. But now he has enjoyed a better run in the side, he is ready to commit.
However, he could still be on the move. There is supposedly a gentleman’s agreement that Wolves will let Traore move on if a club of suitable stature make a significant bid.
There will not be a release clause in the contract but Wolves will honour their word. Goal mention Liverpool, Manchester City and Barcelona as the main clubs who have kept tabs on him in the past.
Just last month, it was claimed that Wolves were hoping to cash in on Traore this summer. Now their stance seems to have changed slightly, but they could still accept bids for him.
Traore tipped as perfect Liverpool fit
Back in March, former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey told the club Traore would be a good signing.
“I think he suits a lot of teams but 100% Liverpool,” Heskey told Rousing The Kop.
“If you look at last season the way Liverpool played a lot of the goals they scored, a lot of them were fast counter attacks.
“He definitely comes into that bracket, again there’s no reason why you can’t have competition in several positions.”
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has previously described Traore as “unplayable” after hailing the speed at which he attacks.
