Barcelona have reportedly ended their interest in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore, but the club's boss Nuno Espirito Santo has expressed his desire to keep the player, as he is important to the squad.
While the Spain international has been holding contract negotiations with the Premier League outfit, it has been suggested that agreeing fresh terms is far from a foregone conclusion.
“Of course. Adama is a huge player for us,” Nuno replied when asked if Traore remained part of his plans at Wolves.
"The impact that he has on the games, what he gives to the team, what he’s done over these two seasons. We want all the players to be happy here.”
With two-and-a-half years still remaining on Traore's contract, Wolves are expected to demand at least double the £18m which they shelled out in 2018, if they are to sell the winger.
Liverpool are said to be among the teams who are also monitoring the situation.
