Wolves told what they need to pay for Adama Traore

Wolverhampton Wanderers are continuing to impress everyone with their transfer dealings this summer as they prepare for life back in the Premier League.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have already signed a number of ambitious targets that would give his team a chance of competing for at least a mid-table finish, rather than battling bravely against relegation.

The likes of Rui Patricio, Raul Jimenez and Joao Moutinho, to name a few, have already joined up with the Molineux Stadium outfit, whilst former Real Madrid star Pepe has also been touted with a move to the Premier League new-boys.

However, Nuno is thought to be far from finished with his transfer plans this summer as he targets a Championship winger, but he has been told that he will need to pay a hefty price to sign him.

According to reports by Sky Sports, Middlesbrough’s Adama Traore features highly on Wolves’ radar but he will not be sold for anything less than the £18million release clause fee that is in his contract.

The Verdict:

A fee of £18m for Traore could be a huge risk for Wolves to take this summer, as the 22-year-old has his flaws.

There is no doubt that the winger is talented and could offer the club something going forward, as well as vital Premier League experience, however, some of his end product does leave a little to be desired.

It remains to be seen if Wolves are prepared to pay the huge fee for the Barcelona graduate, but it could prove to be a bargain fee in the long-term if he continues to progress with his development.
