Wolves can keep £100 million duo from clutches of Chelsea this summer?
Wolves can keep Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore from the clutches of Chelsea and Liverpool, says Matt Murray,
Jimenez, 28, has 10 goals and six assists in the Premier League this season for Champions League hopefuls Wolves, and been on the radar of the club for months, although the deal for Timo Werner may scupper any possible deal this summer.
And Traore is regarded as one of the best wingers in the Premier League after a stunning season at Wolves, reports suggesting that that we could make a move for him too in the summer.
But former Wolves goalkeeper Murray told Sky Sports: “I think Nuno only has a year left on his contract.
“I think if Wolves can get into the Champions League, I would be that much more confident. Especially with Jimenez, he is that bit older and everyone wants to play at the highest level.
“Everyone feels at home, the Wolves fans love them but that would be my concern with Nuno.
“If they do get into the Champions League, they should tie Nuno down to a long-term deal.”
“I believe these players are good enough for the Champions League, so if they don’t get there, that would be a concern.
“But also with the coronavirus, I think Wolves can keep them for another year because clubs won’t be able to pay those fees.
“But sooner or later, Wolves will have to get into the Champions League to match those players’ ambitions.”[the_ad id=”164″]
