WOLVES are reportedly lining up a big-money £18m swoop for Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore.
The former Barcelona and Aston Villa youngster has a clause in his Boro contract that allows him to talk to other clubs when a £18m bid is made, with Villa having a sell-on clause in any prospective deal, should the 22-year-old depart Teesside.
Huddersfield Town have also been credited with an interest in the wingman.
Boro and Nottingham Forest have not held talks regarding Patrick Bamford heading to the City Ground, with the Teessiders keen to keep the striker, who has not been the subject of a formal offer from Forest.

Huddersfield have been linked with a double swoop to sign Leicester City’s Nigerian winger Ahmed Musa and Germany left-back Marvin Plattenhardt.

Plattenhardt, who is also being tracked by Everton and Bournemouth, started Germany’s opening World Cup defeat to Mexico.
