Sources: Leeds make move to sign Adama Troare as Wolves price revealed
Leeds United have a strong interest in Wolves flyer Adama Traore and have made an approach over a potential summer deal, Football Insider understands.
This site revealed on 4 May that Barcelona had decided not to pursue a permanent deal after his loan, with Everton among the interested clubs as they eye a potential replacement for Richarlison if he leaves.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that Leeds are keeping close tabs on Traore’s situation as they set sights on landing a pacy forward capable of carrying the ball forward long distances.
Director of football Victor Orta is a big admirer of Traore and lured him to Middlesbrough from Aston Villa in 2016.
Wolves are willing to sell Traore this summer as they look to raise cash for other signings.
Talks over a new contract have collapsed and this window represents the last opportunity for the Midlands outfit to secure a major fee for their quickest player.

A bid of around £18million is likely to be enough to seal a deal, although Leeds could open the bidding lower than that.
Barcelona had an option to make their January loan transfer permanent in the summer but opted not to trigger it.
The Spain international has struggled to recapture the form of his outstanding 2019-20 campaign, when he scored six goals and weighed in with 12 assists.
He was in and out of the Wolves starting XI in the first half of last season, before joining Barcelona in January.
Traore has a contract at Molineux that runs until the summer of 2023.
