Huddersfield and Wolves set to battle it out for Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore

According to The Sun, Premier League outfits Huddersfield and Wolves are interested in bringing winger Adama Traoré back to the Premier League for £18m.

The Middlesbrough winger is a wanted man after impressing in the Championship last season. Traoré netted 5 times and registered 10 assists in a campaign that helped his side reach the playoffs. Middlesbrough lost out to Aston Villa over two legs in the semi-finals but the 22-year-old may not be enduring another season in the second tier.

Traoré has an £18m release clause and Tony Pulis will consider letting the Spaniard go in order to boost funds for a promotion push. Southampton were also thought to be interested in the youngster but have now signed winger Mohamed Elyounoussi from Swiss side Basel.

Newly-promoted Wolves are now the front runners along with David Wagner’s Huddersfield. Wolves manager Nuno is looking to bolster his already strong squad with a bit more pace, especially if Ivan Cavaleiro leaves as reports suggest. Huddersfield survived in the Premier League last season, despite the odds, and the addition of Traoré would certainly push the Terriers in the right direction as they look to consolidate themselves as a top-flight club.

Would this be a good signing? Let us know in the comments below!
