Sources: West Ham make Traore approach as Moyes plots new role for Wolves star
West Ham have made an enquiry for Wolves star man Adama Traore, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The Hammers have targeted the Spain international, 25, as they look to strengthen their attacking options this summer.
A West Ham source has told Football Insider that the club have registered their interest in Traore amid doubts over his Molineux future.
David Moyes is keen to provide cover and competition for Michail Antonio.
Intriguingly, the Irons boss believes Traore is capable of spearheading the attack in a new centre-forward role as well as operating on the flank.
Moyes has transformed the career of Antonio after handing him the striker role during his second spell as manager of the London club.

The source explained that Traore is not Moyes’ number one forward target but he is on the manager’s list.
Football Insider broke the news last Wednesday (7th July) that Liverpool have also made a surprise enquiry for Traore this summer.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are willing to pay £25million for the super-quick attacker, who Wolves are valuing at £50m.
Traore had a mixed 2020-21 season in which he struggled to reach the heights of his previous campaign and that is likely to see his price tag fall in the coming weeks.
Football Insider revealed in March that Wolves were willing to listen to offers for Traore this summer as they look to trim costs.
Traore first moved to England in January 2015, when he joined Aston Villa from Barcelona before heading to Middlesbrough 18 months later.
He joined Wolves in the summer of 2018 for a then-club record £18m when they triggered his Boro release clause.
