The Spanish striker could be up and running after stopping signing a new contract with his current club
Leeds United are considering a move for Wolves star Adama Traore, Purpose understand.
Contract talks between the Spanish wing and his club came to a standstill and attracted the attention of their rivals in the Premier League.
But the Whites will have to make a substantial transfer expense if they are to achieve their goal.
Wolves, Leeds … or Liverpool?
The club wanted to ward off speculation about their stars, with Liverpool and Barcelona as possible destinations.
Despite early progress, however, negotiations have now reached a stalemate, which has increased the possibility that he can continue.
However, Traore remains under contract until 2023, meaning Wolves are not obliged to sell any of their valued assets.
Leeds will have to pay up to £ 30m to persuade the club to sell this summer, while potentially facing competition from Liverpool, who were also linked with the player in July.
The bigger picture
Traore, a product of the La Masia youth academy in Barcelona, left the giants of Liga at Aston Villa in 2015 after making just four senior appearances.
He also made little impression on Villa Park and was transferred to Middlesbrough after two seasons and 12 games.
But the winger found his best football with the Teesiders and then with Wolves, where he has been a key first player for the past three years as the club has established itself in the Premier League.
The form also attracts the attention of Luis Enrique, who handed him his debut in Spain in 2020 and named him in La Roja’s Euro 2020 team this summer.
