Wolves: Leeds keeping tabs on Adama Traore -Wolves News

Leeds United are still eyeing up a summer move for out-of-favour Wolves winger Adama Traore, according to a fresh transfer report.

The Lowdown: Traore unwanted at Wolves

The 26-year-old joined Barcelona on loan from the Old Gold in January, with Bruno Lage clearly not seeing him as a key player at Molineux, having only selected the speedster in 10 Premier League games prior to his mid-season move.

After a disappointing loan spell in Spain, in which he failed to score in La Liga, Traore will return to Wolves this summer, but it remains to be seen whether or not he will hang around much longer.

The winger has been linked with a move to Leeds in recent days, and a new report has shed further light on the situation.

The Latest: Leeds ready to swoop

According to Football Insider, a recruitment source has informed them that the Whites are continuing to monitor Traore’s situation, with Wolves’ Fosun ownership willing to sell the player in order to fund prospective summer incomings.

A bid of approximately £18m should be enough for Leeds to get a deal over the line, with Jesse Marsch keen on bringing in an attacking ball carrier.

The Verdict: Sell for the right amount

It feels right for Traore to be sold this summer, having flattered to deceive too often in a Wolves shirt over the years. A tally of 11 goals and 18 assists in 154 Old Gold appearances is disappointing for an attacking player.

To receive £18m for his services would be good business by Wolves, even if they may have wanted more in the past, allowing them to sign a superior replacement out wide.

Keeping hold of unwanted players can do more harm than good, and it felt as though Traore was in that category as soon as Lage arrived at Molineux last summer, given how rarely the Spain winger was trusted by the incumbent manager.
