Wolves ‘plan to restart contract talks with Adama Traore but could cash in in January’ if Spaniard continues to refuse extension… with Tottenham, Barcelona, Liverpool and Chelsea watching him
- Tottenham had two bids for Adama Traore rejected by Wolves this summer
- The Spanish winger has started the season in excellent form for Molineux
- Traore has refused to discuss a contract extension for the past year
- His deal expires in 2023, and Wolves are willing to sell if he continues to dodge talks
Wolves will consider firing Adama Traore in January if the in-form winger does not sign a contract extension, according to reports, as he continues to avoid talks.
The Spaniard has gone into the season close to his best that caused the devastation, with the Premier League’s fastest man looking sharp, despite Wolves suffering back-to-back-to-back 1-0 defeats to the season to start.
Tottenham inflicted one of those losses as their new boss Nuno Espirito Santo hatched a plan to snatch Traore from his former club.

Traore is within two years of his contract expiring in 2023 and is reportedly aiming for a step up to a team competing in Europe.
After seeing Bruno Lage come in and quickly establish Traore as a key figure in his Wolves XI, the club are now looking to push for a new long-term deal, according to the Birmingham Mail.
However, the Fosun Group owners will not be watching the Spanish star expire, and will try to cash in on the player in one of the 2023 transfer windows.
Tottenham took center stage in August, with a £5million bid and a last-minute £30million offer being turned down, with Wolves estimating the 25-year-old at £50million.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is also a noted admirer of the winger, while Chelsea have also been linked with Traore this summer.
A return to Barcelona, where he spent his childhood in the Catalans’ La Masia talent factory, is also favored by Traore. In June, amid ties to Spain, he said: “Barcelona is my home. I grew up there and lived there for 10 years.
“I need to discuss things with my agents and see what role Barca need for a return.”
Meanwhile, Lage seems determined to put Traore at the center of his plan of attack at Wolves.
The former Aston Villa man tore through Manchester United’s defenses at Molineux last weekend, but West Midlands were unlucky to eventually be defeated after creating an avalanche of chances.
