Nuno Espirito Santo reiterated that a current Wolves star previously linked with a move to Liverpool remains firmly in his plans.
wolves started the season consistently but fell to win in their last league outing against Leicester.
Despite their consistent point totals, one particular element of their squad has so far appeared weaker compared to last season.
Transfer from Diogo Jota to Liverpool broke the deadly front line he shared with Raul Jimenez and Adama traore.
The last of that trio has had to settle for cameo appearances from the bench this season. Daniel Podence and Pedro Netro have become the favorite duo to flank Jimenez.
The quick winger still has three years on his current contract. Although reports have recently surfaced revealing talks about a new deal had led to complications.
In addition, Athletic revealed that the star was ‘p ***** off’ to the situation.
Traore’s exit had been speculated over the summer, with the Reds often cited as a potential landing point.
The manager of the player’s agency recently revealed the requirements for such a transfer.
Now Nuno has moved to allay exit fears, and has insisted he remains a “huge” player for the club.
When asked if he still has any hope that a new deal can be made with Traore, Nuno said (via the Birmingham courier): “Of course.
“Adama is a huge player for us. The impact he has on the games, what he gives to the team, what he has done in those two seasons.
“We want all the players to be happy here.”
Rare departure awaits Monday?
Regarding his potential recall in the starting XI for their clash with Southampton on Monday, Nuno added: “Adama was with Spain, he came back healthy.
“Now he is preparing like all of us for Monday.
