Wolverhampton Wanderers are considering triggering Adama Traore’s release clause to beat Huddersfield Town to the signing of the Middlesbrough winger.

The former Barcelona forward is as speedy and tricky as they came, with some metrics marking him out as one of Europe’s top dribblers.

And though his final product could still do with some work, the 22-year-old Spaniard is considered a diamond in the rough by both Wolves and the Terriers, who have both made their interest known.

Middlesbrough have no desire to sell the lightning winger, who they consider a key piece in Tony Pulis’ plans for promotion back to the top flight.

But with a release clause in his contract, they will have little choice in the matter should a team offer the £18m required to begin talks with the player.

Wolves have strengthened impressively this season while Huddersfield are also looking at German international Marvin Plattenhardt, but scoffed at his €25m (£22.5m) valuation.
