With Wolves having gone through a fairly busy January transfer window in terms of players coming in and out of the club, it seems as though the Midlands club could have already cemented a transfer deal for the upcoming summer window.
According to a recent report from Spanish media outlet Sport (via Birmingham Mail), Wolves are apparently set to complete a swap deal with Barcelona that will see Adama Traore sign permanently when his loan deal at the Nou Camp ends, and current Old Gold loanee Francisco Trincao stay at Molineux on a permanent basis.
Since then, the 26-year-old has played in two La Liga games for Xavi’s side, providing an assist in each one.
In terms of Trincao, the winger has made 21 appearances for Bruno Lage’s side across all competitions but has only managed to score one goal which came during their 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup back in August.
Regarding his Premier League performances this season, the 22-year-old has earned himself an underwhelming overall performance rating of 6.53/10, making him one of the lowest-rated players to have started more than one league game for the Old Gold this season according to WhoScored.
With that in mind, some Wolves fans may not be too happy to hear that the club could be looking at the possibility of Trincao being used as a form of payment for Traore this summer instead of getting a decent amount of cash that they could then use to find a better replacement for the Spaniard.
Moving forward, if Wolves do end up securing Trincao on a permanent deal in the summer as part of a deal to bring Traore’s time at the club to an end, everyone at the Midlands club will be hoping that the £19.8m-rated attacker can vastly improve his game and become an important figure for the team.
Fosun would be making a howler by allowing this exchange to happen.
