    The midlands club missed out on the signing of Joao Palhinha to Premier League rivals Fulham earlier on in the window.

    Now, Wolves have enquired about another midfielder in Traore, who’s been a long-term target of the club.

    However, it’s understood Lage’s side will face competition from clubs on the continent.

    The 20-year-old has made 28 appearances for Metz, who play in Ligue 2, and only made his debut in May 2021, but has already impressed in France.

    So far this summer, Wolves have permanently signed Goncalo Guedes, Nathan Collins and Hwang Hee-Chan.

    They began their Premier League campaign with a 2-1 defeat to Leeds in the opening weekend.
