The Middlesbrough winger’s buyout clause has been activated by the Premier League new boys
Adama Traore is set to become a Wolverhampton Wanderers player imminently.
The Middlesbrough man has an £18 million release clause in his contract with the Championship side, which Nuno Espirito Santo wanted to activate.
According to The Sun, the up-front payment will also see the former Barcelona man get the contract he wants at Molineux – although the specifics of this are not clear.
The 22-year-old had been linked with a move to fellow Premier League side Chelsea earlier this transfer window. However, the departure of Antonio Conte seems to have scuppered that deal.
Traore arrived in the Premier League in 2015 with Aston Villa after arriving from Barca.
The Spaniard could not help the Villans avoid relegation in 2016, but stayed in the Premier League with a move to Boro.
One of the star players in the Championship last season, he worked tirelessly on improving his final ball under Tony Pulis and was one of the stars of their season.
