Manchester City have approached Wolverhampton Wanderers regarding the availability of in-form winger Adama Traoré, report 90min.
The response from the Midlands side was said to be that only offers in excess of their £70 million valuation would be ‘listened‘ to. Manchester City appear to be unsure on a move at the moment, but have requested that Wolves ‘keep them updated‘ on the future of the 23-year-old Spaniard.
Traore is enjoying his best spell in the Premier League, scoring four goals and registering four assists in his 20 appearances for the Molineux side.
City fans will be familiar with the threat posed by Traoré after he scored in both fixtures against Pep Guardiola’s side this season. He has been deployed as a forward and as a right wing-back for Wolves, where his dribbling skills and physicality have impressed.
Traore was part of Barcelona’s famed La Masia academy during Guardiola’s tenure as manager at the club, and there had been reports that the Catalan previously tried to sign Traoré while in charge of Bundesliga side Bayern Munich.
A move seems very unlikely given the size of the price tag in question, however, Manchester City are hardly short of options on the right-hand side with Bernardo Silva and Riyad Mahrez in the squad.
