Wolves set to make ‘Adama Traore their highest-paid player on £120,000 a week’ amid ongoing interest from Premier League giants Tottenham and Liverpool
- Adama Traore could become the highest paid player at Wolves with a new deal
- The club are looking to offer Traore a new eye-watering £120,000-a-week deal
- As it stands, Traore only has two years left on his current contract at the club
- The new deal would pin him down for another four years and deter their rivals
Adama Traore could become the highest paid player at Wolves as the club are set to offer the winger a new eye-watering £120,000-a-week deal.
Traore only has two years left on his current contract at the club, but Wolves are willing to double the terms of his deal to keep him away from any Premier League rivals.
As a result, they are reportedly set to offer Traore a new four-year contract – worth a total of £25million.

The Spaniard has started the 2021-2022 Premier League well, despite Wolves suffering back-to-back-to-back 1-0 defeats to start the season.
Traore is regarded as one of key men in the Wolves starting XI. Therefore, the club now want to push for a new long-term deal, according to The Sun.
It is believed Wolves will commence talks over the new deal in the coming week, once he returns from Spain’s upcoming 2022 World Cup qualifying fixtures against Georgia and Kosovo.
Traore currently earns around £55,000-a-week but Wolves are willing to more than double it to avoid Tottenham or Liverpool prising him away from the club.
Tottenham were linked with a move for the winger in August, submitting a last-minute £30million bid that was turned away with Wolves valuing the 25-year-old at £50m
Traore could return to Barcelona if he leaves Wolves, having come through their academy
Nevertheless, Traore is reportedly targeting a step up to a team competing in Europe.
Tottenham held the strongest interest in August, submitting a last-minute £30m bid that was turned away with Wolves valuing the 25-year-old at £50m.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is also a known admirer of the powerhouse winger, while Chelsea were also linked with Traore this summer.
A return Barcelona, where he spent his youth at the La Masia talent factory, is also favoured by Traore. Speaking back in June amid links to Spain, he said: ‘Barcelona is my home. I grew up there, and was there for 10 years.
‘I have to discuss things with my agents, and see what role Barca needs for a return.’
