Leeds being kept informed of Traore's situation as Wolves slash £50million price
Leeds United are being kept informed of the situation of Adama Traore at Wolves amid recent developments, according to 90min.
The Spanish attacking midfielder, 25, remains on the radar of the Elland Road outfit after the Midlands club’s decision to slap an asking price of £50million on his head last summer shooed suitors away.
Wolves have now dropped the fee significantly after Traore rejected a number of fresh contract offers from the club, and that has seen clubs attempt to land him during the January transfer window, with Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham and Liverpool keen as manager Bruno Lage is expected to sanction his exit.
Leeds need all the help they can get right now in front of goal, and the jet-heeled winger could help improve their fortunes on the pitch.
Spurs are set to launch a bid of £22million for Traore, and that could alert Victor Orta.
The Whites director of football brought him to Middlesbrough from Aston Villa, and could be eyeing a reunion if the attacker is available for a bargain.
Traore has started 10 Premier League games so far this term, coming off the bench eight times, but he has not been able to score or assist.
While he was brilliant in 2019-20, ending the campaign with four goals and nine assists in 37 games, he only ended up with two goals and two assists in 37 league games in 2020-21.
Nevertheless, he surely has what it takes to help a Leeds side that rely on counter-attacking football.
His pace and crossing abilities could make Marcelo Bielsa’s side improve in front of goal, but whether they will be keen to take a gamble on him right now remains to be seen.
The Whites have averaged just a goal per game so far, and should they look to add to their attack, they would want someone that can guarantee an immediate impact.
