Lots of Wolves fans have discussed the rumour that Manchester City are going to bid €80m for Spanish winger Adama Traore.
Fan account @TalkingWolves tweeted about the rumour – which they attribute to Calciomercato – to which many fans responded with their opinions.
The majority of the fans think that they should no sell the tricky winger, despite the enormous amount of money which is being talked about.
The Spanish wide man has been in some form this season. According to WhoScored’s algorithm, he has had an average match rating of 7.74 – the highest in the Wolves squad and the second-highest in the entire division, with only Kevin de Bruyne having better.
Here are what some of the fans thought of the rumour below…
I know every player has a price , and it would be a massive profit , but if wolves are serious about becoming a top 6 club, season after season players like him and Raul have to stay and we add to strengthen

If Fosun turn down that big of a profit we should rename all of our stands in honour of Fosun officials.

It’s a reasonable price but we would be absolutely stupid to sell him he’s our best player at the moment.

Don’t need to sell him he’ll be worth double that this time next year

Can probably take his left calf for that!

This acts as good proof of how far both Adama Traore and Wolves have come.
How much is Adama Traore worth to Wolves?
Less than £70m
£70m sounds about right
More than £70m
Unsure - it's too hard to tell in the transfer market these days
Firstly, Traore started just eight league games last year; this year, he has been one of the better players in the entire division, and now fans don’t even want to take £68m (€80m) for the player – imaging hearing that this time next year.
Secondly, Wolves are now in a position where they have a player that is worth that kind of money. More impressively, they are debatably in a position to turn it down when you consider that they are in the final 32 of the Europa League and just six points off the Champions League positions in the league.
