A Spanish journalist has confirmed that a move to Barcelona for Wolves talent Adama Traore would be “unviable” but an exit is not improbable.
The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Molineux in recent months, with the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City in pursuit for his services (via talkSPORT).
Traore caught the eyes of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp during their 2-1 defeat to the Merseysiders, and the German tactician went on to describe the Spaniard as “unplayable” (via Twitter).
Mundo Deportivo journalist Miguel Rico (via Sport Witness), has somewhat written off a return to the Catalan giants, describing the rumours as “unviable”, and backed up reports from England that Klopp was interested in Traore.
This comes after contract talks broke down between Wolves and the player, who are planning to make him one their highest-paid players at the club (via 90MIN).
Transfer Tavern take
This is yet more unnecessary uncertainty that Wolves, and the supporters, could do without.
Traore is an essential asset for the West Midlands outfit. Despite not scoring any goals or providing any assists this season, his unorthodox style is crucial to Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad and an incredible useful weapon for the manager to have.
If the money comes in that Wolves want for him, it could be a question of when Traore will leave, as opposed to if. For the time being though, they have every right to stand firm.
