Report: Leeds are now considering making a move for Wolves' Adama Traore
Leeds United are now considering making their move for Wolves winger Adama Traore, who has seen contract talks at Molineux stall.
We reported over the weekend how Leeds were being linked with a £30m move for the speedy Spanish international.
And now, Goal have reported that Leeds are now considering making their move for Traore, with his contract issues at Wolves inviting the Whites into making a bid.
Traore has been a key player for Wolves over the last few seasons. However, he has also suffered from inconsistencies, with just two goals and the same amount of assists last season.
The former Barcelona winger has two years left on his current contract at Molineux. Along with fellow first-team star Ruben Neves, it is believed Wolves could be open to offers for Traore.
Any move for Leeds at the reported £30m price would represent a club-record outlay for the club. Last summer, the Whites paid around £26m for Rodrigo Moreno.
Marcelo Bielsa is looking for fresh faces this season. After such a fine return to the Premier League, the Leeds boss is keen to ensure there is no drop off this term.
Traore ideal but an expensive capture
There is no doubt that Traore fits in with how Leeds play. His pace, power, and directness fits in with Leeds’ system perfectly.
But the £30m fee is a big chunk of change for a player who, at times, struggle to keep consistent in his performances.
On the flipside, good players cost good money. Traore has PL experience, and can be a game-changer on his day. That could well tempt Leeds into making their move.
