Chelsea have reportedly identified Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore as a possible summer transfer target.

Traore endured a woeful Premier League season last season, scoring just two goals and providing three assists while failing to score in the top level until April 9, when he scored the game-winning goal against Fulham.

However, as he enters the final two years of his Molineux contract, the 25-year-performances old’s have improved, and speculation over his future has grown.

According to The Telegraph, Thomas Tuchel has been handed a £200 million transfer budget for the summer transfer window, and Traore is on Chelsea’s list of objectives.

According to the source, Thomas Tuchel admires Traore’s talents as a wing-back, but Wolves will not allow him to leave for peanuts, thus Jonas Hofmann of Borussia Monchengladbach has been identified as a possible replacement.
