Sources: Traore made available at half price by Wolves as updated Leeds stance revealed
Wolves are willing to sell Adama Traore for a knockdown £30million this summer – but that won’t tempt Leeds United, Football Insider has learned.
The Midlands club were talking about the super-quick winger, 25, as a £60-70million asset last year when he was linked with some of the world’s elite clubs.
But Traore’s stock has fallen and a Wolves source has told Football Insider that £30m would be enough to prise him from Molineux in the upcoming window.
Football Insider revealed last Friday that Wolves were willing to listen to offers for Traore after talks over a new contract broke down.
Leeds were linked with the Spain international in January, and again by Eurosport who claimed an offer would be tabled this summer.
But they are not pursuing the wide man, even with the drastic reduction in his price tag.

Manager Marcelo Bielsa does not believe Traore has the technical quality and ability to combine the play that he seeks in his wide attacker.
Traore has failed to hit the same heights this season as he did last term, which was the most productive of his career.
He has scored just once and provided one assist from 31 appearances across all competitions, including 19 Premier League stars.
By contrast, last term his 54 matches in all competitions yielded six goals and 12 assists.
Traore was close to agreeing a new Wolves contract including a pay hike last October but negotiations reached a deadlock and they have been put on the backburner.
He joined from Middlesbrough in 2018 for a then club-record fee of £18million and his contract expires in 2023.
