It appears Wolves are all set to sign Adama Traore from Middlesbrough in the coming days. The Express and Star report that a club record £18 million deal for the former Barcelona winger is set to be completed before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
It will be a major coup for Wolves, considering the obvious talent the 22-year-old possesses.
But should Huddersfield Town be taking note of this deal?
Wolves now have plenty of wide options. Along with Traore, they have Helder Costa, Diego Jota and Ivan Cavaleiro all present, along with fringe options such as Rafa Mir, Bright Enobakhare and Jordan Graham.
So should Huddersfield see if they can get their hands on a player they reportedly wanted earlier this summer?
The Terriers were heavily linked with a move for Cavaleiro back in June. It was even reported at one point that a £12 million deal had been agreed for the player.
That clearly never came to fruition. However, with the arrival of Traore, could Wolves be more susceptible to a potential sale. It has already been seen that key players from their promotion could be available. Huddersfield’s West Yorkshire rivals Leeds United got their hands on left-back Barry Douglas recently.
Whilst Ramadan Sobhi has arrived from Stoke the Terriers still need to bring in extra attacking power if they are to survive a relegation battle this season. Cavaleiro could be the man for the job.
