Adama Traore has rejected offers from Barcelona and Liverpool as the Wolves winger opts to stay this summer
Adama Traore has become one of the trusted members of Nuno Espirito’s side as the Spaniard has shown signs of progression since he arrived in 2018. The former Middlesborough man has been in outstanding form for the English club as the player has repeatedly provided an instant impact with his presence on the pitch.
The 24-year-old winger began his career by being a part of Barcelona’s youth setup in his early childhood days and with more development, the player was handed the opportunity to become a part of Barcelona ‘B’ side. However, the talented winger could not make progress with his first-team opportunities at Camp Nou and was sent away to the Premier League in 2015.
Traore began his new stint with the Lions in the summer of 2015 but was able to spend only a year at Villa Park as the player moved to Middlesborough next summer. With decent performances at Riverside Stadium, the wing-back had established himself in the North Yorkshire based club.
However, things changed for the La Masia academy graduate in 2018 as Wolves signed the Spanish international for a fee of 18 million pounds. Since his move to the Molineux Stadium, the player has gradually developed himself into a pacy winger who possesses great strength and agility.
Last season, Traore made 37 appearances for Nuno Espirito’s side scoring 4 goals and providing 9 assists in the League campaign. His impactful performances mostly came off the bench as the player consistently created chances for his team in the latter half of the matches.
According to reports, clubs like Barcelona and Liverpool had enquired about the availability of the Spaniard as both teams were reportedly interested to land the winger this summer. However, there were no concrete negotiations from either of the two clubs. There have been rumors that the 24-year-old had reportedly turned down offers from both interested parties as to the Wolves right-winger had decided to stay back at the Molineux Stadium.
Meanwhile, Liverpool signed Diogo Jota from Wolverhamtpon Wanderers and were hoping to sign Adama Traore as well in the near future. However, it seems like the Spanish winger is eager on renewing terms with Wolves and securing his future with Nuno Espirito Santo.
Currently, the Wolves are sitting 6th on the league table and are aiming for a place in the top four by the end of their league campaign. Nuno Espirito’s men are slated to face Newcastle and Crystal Palace in the next weeks of this month. Wolves will feel they have the right kind of players who could help the team for a place in next season’s Champions League or even the Europa League.
