Wolves winger Adama Traoré is the latest man to be linked with a summer move to Chelsea, the newly crowned Champions League champions.
The Spanish international has two years left on his contract at Molineux and has yet to agree to a new deal, with talks between the Midland club and his representatives having dragged on for much of last season.
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo expressed confidence last month that Traore would commit to a new deal, but his surprise departure by mutual consent has thrown all that into the air.
Traore joined the club from Middlesbrough for what was then a record fee of £18 million and has made 103 Premier League appearances, scoring seven goals.
Chelsea are looking to boost their attacking options and Traoré is one of their names on their shortlist along with Tottenham’s Harry Kane. Former striker Romelu Lukaku is also a top target for the West London club.
