Wolves winger Adama Traore will probably cost £35-40m this summer, journalist Luke Hatfield has told Football FanCast.
Traore has been heavily linked with a move away from Molineux, with Chelsea thought to be one team currently circling.
According to The Athletic, the west London club have an interest in the 25-year-old, who could give Thomas Tuchel the kind of attacking threat down the right flank he is looking for.
Traore has just two years left on his contract, so this could be Wolves’ last opportunity to make good money off of the Spaniard.
When asked by FFC how much Wolves could sell him for, Hatfield of the Express & Star said:
“His contract makes it murky, doesn’t it? I’d say probably a similar amount to [Ruben] Neves, 35, maybe £40m.
“He’s a young player, so he can still improve. But the contract situation, as I said, makes it murky.”
It is not the £80m price tag that has floated around in the past, but selling Traore for half of that would still be good business from a financial point of view.
Wolves signed Traore for £18m from Middlesbrough back in 2018 after meeting a release clause in his contract, so the Midlands club would still obviously be making a profit.
