Chelsea enter the battle for €30m-rated Spanish forward

Wolves are reportedly keen to offer Adama Traore a new deal in an offer to fend off interest from the PL’s big boys. Tottenham were in negotiations over the possibility of signing Adama, with an initial loan deal with an option to buy discussed.

The Blues also mentioned as a potential suitor for the 25-year-old winger after Chelsea began transfer planning following their UCL triumph. Still, the transfer window has now closed, with Traore remaining a Wolves footballer. The club’s hierarchy are clearly intent on ensuring that remains the case long-term.

Wolves are prepared to increase Spain international’s wages from £55k-a-week to £120k-a-week in order to convince him to commit his future to the club. As is the case with most situations like this, Adama’s future will be determined by whether he is driven by money or the idea of achieving success through winning major silverware.

While the winger is far from the full package, and his limitations have been well-documented, he is entirely unique and hugely effective. He could get a ‘big’ move if he wanted one. Wolves will seemingly do everything in their power to prevent that happening, but the allure of clubs like Spurs and Chelsea will be difficult to combat.
