Wolves may end up selling Adama Traore to a rival in the Premier League after a claim emerged involving Bruno Lage.
The Lowdown: Traore Liverpool bound?
There have been a number of reports over the course of the summer transfer window linking Traore with a move to Liverpool.
Would you consider letting Traore go to a direct rival for the right price?
The Spain international would surely demand a large transfer fee should the Midlands club decide to sell him, which could then be reinvested into the squad.
The Latest: Lage claim
As per Football Insider, the Molineux faithful have given Liverpool some ‘encouragement’ over a potential deal for Traore.
A source from the Wanderers has told the news outlet that the winger is ‘not expected’ to suit Lage’s new tactical set-up, and so may be sold in order to raise funds for some more potential incomings.
The Verdict: Do not sell
Wolves should not be looking to sell Traore, especially to a rival in the top flight, if they have any ambition to climb up the league table.
Described as ‘so talented’ by now Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo back in November, the 25-year-old is capable of winning games for Wolves on his own when he’s fully fit and on form, and at some point they need to try and keep hold of their best players.
Nonetheless, even if he does not fit Lage’s new tactics, Traore offers a very good Plan B option, and so should not be overlooked by the new coach.
