Former Wolves striker Steve Bull believes his old side have no reason to sell Adama Traore this summer, and has hinted that it could be an exciting next 12-18 months for the club if they spend the money they have.
Traore has been linked with a move to the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City in the past and, according to Goal, the 25-year-old winger had considered a transfer in the early part of the season when he was not playing regularly.
However, the same outlet are now reporting that he is close to signing a new contract at the club – if he stays he won’t be working under Nuno Santo following confirmation that he will be departing after Sunday’s clash with Manchester United.
Should Wolves sell Traore?
Yes, he's overrated
And while Bull expects more interest in the player this summer, the legendary Wolves forward feels there is simply no reason to get rid of him, and believes the club are willing to go for it financially in the next year and a half.
Speaking exclusively to TT about Traore, he said:
“I don’t think Wolves need the money, so I don’t think they need to get rid of him.”
“When you get talk of clubs like that coming in, Tottenham, Liverpool, Man U, Chelsea, then they might have a sniff again.
“I don’t know. I think they’ve got rid of all the players they need to get rid of, and I think now they’re saying, ‘Spend the money [we’ve] got and we’ll see what happens in the next 12 to 18 months.’ “
While Traore has not been at this productive best this season, the Spain international continues to be a dangerous threat with his terrifying dribbling, averaging the most dribbles per league game in his squad (via WhoScored).
Furthermore, he is a player that is probably worth keeping around at Molineux.
