Wolves journalist Nathan Judah has been sharing his thoughts on Old Gold winger Adama Traore and his at the Midlands club. 

This comes after Judah made an appearance on a recent video from the Express & Star’s YouTube channel alongside Joe Edwards where the duo spoke about Wolves’ current crop of attacking players.

On the subject of Traore, who has been linked with a move away from Molineux in recent weeks, Judah had this to say about the player.

He said: “[Traore is] yet to sign a contract, we record this, we’re hopeful that he does.

“You want your exciting players; you want your players who can literally take the game away from the opposition in a couple of movements.

“He’s special, he has definitely got flaws, but you can’t teach some of the skills that he’s got, and I for one, hope that he’s still at the club next season [and] he signs that new deal.

“I think he’s a very important player at Wolverhampton Wanderers.”

Wolves signed Traore back in the 2018 from Championship club Middlesbrough.

Since then, the 25-year-old, who is currently valued at £27 million, has gone on to make 131 appearances for Wolves across all competitions in which he has managed to score 10 goals and provide 18 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Nathan Judah’s comments on Traore and his future at Wolves…

Despite only managing to score two goals and provide two assists throughout the 2020/21 Premier campaign, with Traore managing to end the season as Wolves’ joint-highest-rated player alongside Pedro Neto with an overall rating of 7.11/10 for his performances, as per WhoScored, it’s understandable why Judah would like to see the Spaniard stay at the club.

Would you be disappointed if Wolves sold Traore this summer?

However, with it being reported back in November that the player had run into some issues with the club over a potential new contract, it feels that, in our view, the longer it goes on without Traore putting pen to paper on a new deal, the more likely it may become that he will leave the club.
