Premier League giants Manchester City are interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers star Adama Traore in the summer. The Citizens have already asked the Wolves to keep them in the loop regarding the 23-year-old’s future at Molineux.
Traore joined Wolverhampton from Middlesbrough in 2018 and has become a fan favourite at the Molineux. The right winger’s blistering pace has earned him plaudits throughout the globe.
Traore is contracted to Wolves until 2023, meaning the English outfit are in no hurry to sell him. He has registered five goals and seven assists for Wolves this season.
Traore also netted a brace in the club’s recent 3-2 humbling of Manchester City. Wolves won’t let him go for anything less than £70 million.
Spanish giants Barcelona, the club where Traore began his professional career as a youngster, are also interested in taking him back in the summer. Meanwhile, Premier League table-toppers Liverpool are also considering a bid should his emphatic form continue in the second half of the season.
The Spaniard recently stated his wish to return to the LaLiga shortly.
“If I do not have the option of Barca and I have to go to Real Madrid, I do not close any doors,” he told La Sexta to show Jugones.
“There was a misunderstanding with Barca. Something happened that I didn’t like, but I prefer to keep it for myself.”
“Yes, why not [return to Spain]. But I made a promise to become one of the best in England.”
Meanwhile, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo reiterated his desire to keep the winger.
“He has a contract with the club,” he said of Traore.
“He’s happy here, puts a lot of energy, dedication, into things and wants to improve. He’s happy. Things that happen outside, we can’t control.”
It remains to be seen which club manages to poach the 23-year-old when the summer transfer window begins.
