According to the BBC, Wolves are close to agreeing a new deal for winger Adama Traore, which should put an end to any hope Liverpool or Barcelona have of signing him.
As the report states, Liverpool and Barca are said to be keen on Traore after a fine couple of seasons at Molineux and his emergence onto the international scene this year.
However, the BBC now claim that Wolves are close to agreeing a new contract with the winger, in a move which would likely see him tied down to another four or five years at the club.
Traore, who earns a reported £43k-a-week, per Spotrac, would no doubt see a huge increase in those wages and would follow in the footsteps of the likes of Conor Coady and Raul Jimenez in penning new deals with the club.
Furthermore, manager Nuno Santo has also agreed new terms this summer. The Portuguese boss, then, clearly making it a number one priority to keep hold of his best players for the future.

This is brilliant for Wolves if they can get it over the line. Not only does it mean they keep one of their best players, but it also means that should those clubs mentioned really want him, they’ll have to pay an astronomical fee.
Traore is brilliant on his day. A real nightmare for even the best defenders in the world.
Keeping him is essential if Wolves are to keep improving. Santo has done a fine job. But losing your key players can often derail things.
