Wolves set to begin talks for new Adama Traore deal amid Liverpool interest

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly signalled that they are prepared to begin talks with winger Adama Traore over a lucrative new contract.

The Midlands side have already concluded new long-term deals with manager Nuno Espirito Santo, skipper Conor Coady and top scorer Raul Jimenez this summer, fending off interest from the likes of Manchester United with the latter.

Traore, 24, has caught the eye of some of the world’s top sides with his performances over the last year and consequently has been linked with Liverpool, Barcelona and Juventus this summer – with a transfer figure as high as £70m being mentioned.

According to the Daily Mail, however, Wolves are now hoping to tie another key figure down for the long term and are preparing to begin negotiations for a new four-year deal.

The Spaniard is currently under contract at Molineux until 2023.
