Traore’s current deal at Molineux is set to expire in the summer of 2023, but Wolves are keen on keeping him for the long term on a fresh contract.

 

The 25-year-old has caught the eye with a string of impressive outings on the pitch and Wolves’ Premier League rivals Leeds are firm admirers of him.

 

 

Traore, whose contract talks were halted earlier this season with the player looking for a better deal, has now resumed talks and Wolves boss Nuno is optimistic the player will put pen-to-paper on the dotted line even if there is interest from the likes of Leeds.

 

Asked about Traore’s contract negotiations, Nuno told a press conference: “I believe everything is going to be okay.

 

 

“I hope and expect everything will be solved.”

 

In regards to his team as whole, the Wolves boss added that securing top flight football for another year is a great achievement for the club, considering it has been a tough season on all fronts.

 

 

“It’s a big achievement, especially and due to the hard work of the players.

 

“This season was a tough one.

 

“To be able to say five or six games ago we were okay and sure we have Premier League football, that’s the main part, especially the mission that this year has represented.”

 

Wolves will be hoping to sort out Traore’s deal as soon as possible and ward off interest in him, while it remains to be seen whether Leeds make any concrete move for him when the summer window swings open.
