The Sun have revealed that Wolves are ready to make Adama Traore their highest-paid player, in an effort to fend off Tottenham’s interest in signing the attacker.
Spurs were heavily linked with a move for Traore in the last couple of weeks of the summer transfer window.
However, Bruno Lage’s side managed to stand firm on deadline day and held onto the winger, who has two years left on his contract at Molineux.
It remains to be seen if the Lilywhites will make a renewed attempt for Traore in January but if The Sun’s latest update is to be believed, the Black Country club are trying their best to prevent that.
The report claims that Wolves are ready to offer Traore a fresh four-year contract worth £120,000-a-week, which would make the 25-year-old the club’s highest-paid player ahead of both Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves.

I suspect one of the reasons Spurs decided not to offer £50m for Traore on transfer deadline day was due to the winger’s contract situation, with the possibility of him being available for a much lower price in January or next summer if he fails to sign a new deal.
Given that the 25-year-old allegedly pushed to join Tottenham, Paratici would have likely communicated with the player’s camp that they might make a renewed attempt for him next window. So, it will be interesting to see if Traore pens an extension.
