Journalist Dean Jones has claimed that there will be conversations over the future of Adama Traore at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Traore is currently on loan with Barcelona in La Liga from Wolves in the Premier League but since January, he has made just three starts in the Spanish league, whilst failing to score and registering two assists.
There is a clause in the loan deal that the Spanish club can sign Traore on a permanent deal in the summer for £29 million if they want him, but it appears that he may return to Wolves after there have been reports stating that they will only sign him if it is on a free transfer.
With reports that Barcelona are not keen to sign Traore on a permanent deal, Jones spoke to GiveMeSport and claimed that there are big conversations that need to be had at the end of the season.
“They are going to have to have conversations about how they will move on from this situation. This hasn’t gone the way that he expected it to.
“It’s been a really frustrating year for him. He’s had absolutely massive ups and downs, but Wolves need this to suit them as much as it suits him. So, there are big conversations to be had at the end of the season,” Jones said.
Do you think Traore will stay at Wolves next season?
TIF Thoughts on Jones’s comments…
Traore wasn’t always first choice in the first half of the season as he made 20 appearances in the Premier League but just 10 of those were starts, so Bruno Lage thought it would be best if he went on loan, as well as the winger wanting to secure a move back to Spain.
The winger is currently valued at £25 million by Transfermarkt, and with his contract set to expire next season, Wolves may be keen to come up with a long-term plan for him and decide whether they want to offload him on a permanent deal away from Molineux whilst they can.
