Wolves in advanced negotiations to sell Adama Traore

Wolverhampton Wanderers have let go of 13 players this summer so far and now a new update has emerged on a last-minute exit for a popular player at the club.

What’s the latest?

According to Sporx (via Sport Witness), Galatasaray have accelerated their negotiations with Wolves to sign Adama Traore before the Turkish transfer window closes tonight.

At what football club's academy did former Wolves captain Conor Coady graduate from?

As per the report, Galatasaray are currently crunching the numbers to get a deal done to bring the Wolves winger to Turkey and agree a deal before the window slams shut.

The Turkish club have been negotiating a salary worth €2.7m (£2.3m), which is an increase on the €2.5m (£2.1m) he currently earns at Wolves.

It’s time to go

There is no doubt that Bruno Lage needs to finally ditch Traore from Wolves and the interest from Galatasaray is the golden opportunity to send the player packing.

The 26-year-old winger has become more of a hindrance than a help over the last 12 months at the club which prompted a loan move back to his former club Barcelona in January. However, the La Liga giants were not keen on triggering their option to buy clause and Traore was sent back to Wolverhampton.

Traore has not scored or assisted his teammates in the Premier League since the 15th of January which was his only goal for Wolves over last season and over four appearances in the current campaign he has still failed to deliver any goal contributions.

Should Wolves sell Adama Traore?





That is shocking for a forward, especially at a club that has hopes for a return to European football, and as a consequence, it must be time for his stint at Molineux to come to an end.

The £46k-per-week Spaniard has often been blasted for his performances with Tony Cascarino labelling Traore “terrible”, and former Atletico Madrid boss Jorge D’Alessandro went on a scathing rant about the player when he was on loan with Barcelona last season (via Daily Mail):

“Where is the talent? Where is the subtlety of dribbling? Where is the ability to dribble? Going through with just strength but what kind of football is that? Football is strength? Football is details.

“You can keep Adama Traore.”

That’s a rather damning assessment but perhaps a deserved one considering he has only scored four times in the last two and a bit years.

Wolves will imminently complete the signing of Diego Costa so the acquirement of another forward opens the door even wider for Traore’s exit, something that simply has to happen in the hours that remain of the Turkish transfer window.
