WOLVES are making a surprise bid to sign Metz midfielder Boubacar Traore in an £8million deal.
Wanderers are keen to recruit top young talent and fancy the midfielder, 20.
Traore is being eyed up by Wolves ahead of a potential summer transfer
Metz are holding out for more cash but are willing to sell the Malian.
He made his debut for the Ligue 1 side last season, breaking through at the end of the campaign.
And he has now made himself a staple in their side during the 2021-22 campaign.
Traore has played 17 times for Metz in all competitions so far this season, assisting one goal.
He has also been capped nine times for Mali’s U20 side but is yet to receive a full international call-up.
Meanwhile, Wolves officially sold Adama Traore on Saturday as he returned to Barcelona on loan.
The LaLiga side will pay 100 per cent of his salary, with an option to buy included for £25million.
The Wolves winger, 26, who completed his medical on Friday, came through the Catalan giants’ youth set-up and made four appearances for the first team between 2013 and 2015.
But he left for England seven years ago, joining Aston Villa for £7m.
And since then he has also gone on to play for Middlesbrough, before moving to Wolves in 2018.
FREE BETS: GET OVER £2,000 IN NEW CUSTOMER DEALS
However, his goalscoring record remains somewhat questionable – with just 11 in 154 appearances for Wanderers.
Traore looked set to join Spurs earlier in the window but a deal fell through after a disagreement between the player and Lilywhites boss Antonio Conte.
