Wolves: Hatfield hints at an early exit for Traore

Wolverhampton Wanderers could be set for a big boost to their transfer budget in the upcoming window, as Bruno Lage’s side competes for a European spot in the second half of the season.

What’s the word?

Journalist, Luke Hatfield, has claimed there is potential for Adama Traore to make a move to another club in the January transfer window, he told GIVEMESPORT:

“For me, I think it’s one where in the summer we probably look and wonder whether he’s going to be off. January might be an option as well.”

Adama Traore’s exit from Wolves has been one of the most speculated stories this season, as the likes of Liverpool and Real Madrid have reportedly been linked to the winger.

Do you think Traore will leave in January?

Yes

Yes

No

No

There has not currently been any movement in Wolves securing a new deal with Traore and the Spaniard has only made nine starts with no goals or assists in the 945 minutes of game time he has been given so far this term, which only adds fuel to the fire that the club are potentially now open to sell before his contract ends in 2023.

Should Wolves let Traore go?

Something we see a lot with contracts that are running down to their last 12 – 18 months is a decrease in valuation, and if Lage is in a position to let Traore go, he should do so sooner rather than later.

Due to the winger’s struggles to make an impact on his side this season and his competitors for the position in the team offering more in their starts, it seems like now is the right time mutually for both the player and the club to move on.

Hwang Hee-Chan is tipped to be given a permanent deal, after making an instant impact on the Wolves side with four goals, whilst Daniel Podence has offered up two goals and two assists already too, pushing Traore further down the pecking order and proving that Wolves can succeed without him in the team.

On the other hand, squad depth is something that has always been crucial to the success of many teams, especially those who have the potential and the intention to compete in multiple competitions, including European football, which Wolves currently are in a position to become involved in, so Lage will remain conscious about letting go of players at a vulnerable stage in the season.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

With that being said, everything has its price, and if a large amount of money is offered to Wolves for Traore in January, that Jeff Shi and co can add to the transfer budget moving forward, there is every chance that he could be sold in January to the highest bidder.

With that in mind, it would surely actually be a boost if they lost his services this winter. The funds received could just end up making a huge difference in improving the whole make up of the team, something that will surely drive them closer towards European football.
