Juventus ‘offer three players to Wolves’ for Adama Traore

JUVENTUS are reportedly prepared to offer three of their fringe players in part-exchange for top target Adama Traore.

The 24-year-old – who still has three years left on his contract at Molineux – is understood to have no shortage of admirers should he decide to leave.

Traore has been hugely impressive for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this campaign – chipping in with six goals and 12 assists in 48 games in all competitions.

Wolves league rivals Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been credited as admirers of the Spaniard.

But Italian giants Juventus are thought to be leading the race and are working on a proposal which could see three players move in the opposite direction.

ESPN claim the Serie A champions are willing to part with goalkeeper Mattia Perin as well as defenders Daniele Rugani and Cristian Romero, who is on loan at Genoa.

The report adds that Juve would not be able to afford Traore in a straight cash deal with Wolves setting a £60million price tag on the speedster.

Italian defender Rugani has been on the West Midlander’s radar before, having rivalled Arsenal for his signature back in January.

Wolves chief Espirito Santo still needs a centre-half and it is felt the 25-year-old would be ideal for his three at the back system.

Traore meanwhile is also a target for former employers Barcelona.

The Spain U21 star – born and raised in Catalonia – came through the Blaugrana’s academy where he scored one goal in four games.

After a lack of first-team opportunities he made the move to Aston Villa in 2015, before linking up with Middlesbrough the following year.
