£46k-a-week star ‘will still be leaving’ Molineux

Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore will probably leave Molineux, transfer insider Dean Jones has told GiveMeSport.

Julen Lopetegui wants to keep the 26-year-old at the club, but Jones is expecting him to depart at some point in 2023 as his contract continues to run down.

Wolves transfer news – Adama Traore

Traore’s existing deal with Wolves expires next summer, but Lopetegui and the Midlands outfit are hoping that he stays.

“We have a big consideration about Adama and we are going to try, of course, to have him continue here,” the Spaniard recently told the Express & Star and other outlets.

“But we will see. I don’t know what is going to happen, but I know his commitment with us is big and this is my demand as a coach. After, I don’t know what will happen.”

Lopetegui has got off to a good start at Molineux, taking Wolves to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup thanks to a win against Gillingham before picking up his first Premier League victory versus Everton.

What has Dean Jones said about Adama Traore’s Wolves future?

Be it in January or at the end of the season, Jones is expecting Traore to leave Wolves.

In response to Lopetegui’s recent comments on the player, the journalist said to GMS: “I’m not sure how that will end up playing out because I don’t think the overall picture has changed too much for him.

I think Adama Traore will still be leaving Wolves. I just can’t tell right now if that’s going to be in January or at the end of the season.”

Who could Adama Traore join?

If Traore, who is currently earning £46,000 a week (via Salary Sport), does decide he wants to leave Wolves, one potential destination for him could be Tottenham.

According to 90min, Tottenham retain an interest in the Spain international, having tried to sign him in the past.

Traore does not carry too much of a goal threat, registering just once last season, as per Transfermarkt, but it is not hard to see why Tottenham want the player and why Wolves want to keep hold of him.

He is really good at carrying the ball, completing 4.2 dribbles per game during the 2021/22 Premier League campaign. None of his team-mates averaged more (via WhoScored). In a wing-back role under Antonio Conte at Tottenham, he could cause absolute havoc.

Ultimately, it is a move you can see happening, but it does not look like Wolves and Lopetegui are giving up on keeping Traore at Molineux just yet.
