Last week, Sky Sports reported Wolverhampton Wanderers would let Adama Traoré leave the club if they receive a big offer.
It was also explained Sevilla’s Lucas Ocampos would be Traoré’s immediate replacement, if the latter is sold by the Wanderers this summer.
Wolves are interested in the Argentina international, whose goal knocked them out of the Europa League earlier this month. The 26-year-old, who arrived at Sevilla from Marseille last summer, has a €70m release clause in his contract.
Sky Sports reported Julen Lopetegui’s side would be prepared to sell Ocampos for around €45m due to financial problems caused by the coronavirus crisis.
These claims have been relayed in today’s edition of AS, and they provide the stance of the player and his club on a possible transfer to Wolves.
Having signed the wideman for €15m, the Spanish side would make a ‘capital gain of €30m’, if they sell him to Wolves for €45m.
The report, however, adds it’s ‘not clear’ if Sevilla sporting director Monchi is willing to let the player leave for that amount.
Nuno Espírito Santo’s side have failed to qualify for the next season’s Champions League.
AS state Ocampos is not keen on joining a club who won’t offer him Champions League football, because the winger has shown ‘enthusiasm’ for playing in Europe’s elite club competition with the La Liga side next season.
Despite Wolves showing interest in the Argentine, AS believe a potential transfer is highly unlikely because of the aforementioned factors.
Ocampos finished his debut season at Sevilla with 17 goals and five assists in all competitions.
