The Spaniard may be on the move after failing to agree on a new contract extension with his present club.

Leeds United are reportedly exploring a deal for Wolves midfielder Adama Traore.

The Spain winger’s contract negotiations with his club have stagnated, drawing the interest of their Premier League opponents.

However, the Whites would need to make a significant transfer expenditure if they are to acquire their objective.

Wolves started contract negotiations with Traore in May.

The club was eager to avert transfer rumors around its star, with Liverpool and Barcelona being touted as potential destinations.

Despite initial progress, talks have hit a stalemate, increasing the likelihood that he may leave.

Traore is still under contract with Wolves until 2023, which means the club is under no compulsion to sell one of its greatest assets.

Leeds would need to spend up to £30 million to persuade the club to sell this summer, and they may face competition from Liverpool, who were also connected to the midfielder in July.

Traore, a product of Barcelona’s La Masia development system, joined Aston Villa in 2015 after making only four professional appearances for the Liga giants.

He also failed to make an impact at Villa Park, and was loaned to Middlesbrough after two seasons and 12 appearances.

However, the winger found his finest football with Teesside and then Wolves, where he has been a vital first-team player during the club’s first three years in the Premier League.

That form also attracted Luis Enrique’s notice, who gave him his Spain debut in 2020 and selected him to La Roja’s Euro 2020 team this summer.
