Wolves fear Adama Traore could be forced into surgery after dislocating shoulder three times in 16 games – The Sun

WOLVES fear Adama Traore could be forced into surgery after dislocating his shoulder three times in 16 games.

The powerhouse forward picked up the injury after colliding with Tottenham defender Japhet Tanganga in Wolves 3-2 win at Spurs on Sunday.

But the winger also suffered the same injury in the reverse fixture at Molineux in December and then in their goalless draw at Manchester United a month later.

Daily Mail report that Traore may have to again have surgery on his shoulder for the third time in just three months.

But Wolves are still hoping the 24-year-old will be for their home game against Brighton on Saturday.

Traore has made 41 appearances for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side and played a pivotal part in their race for a Champions League finish and Europa League run.

Wolves sit sixth in the table, level on points with United in fifth and three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.

And last month they beat Espanyol over two legs to book their place in the last 16 of the Europa League.

Traore’s form, that has seen him score six times and provide ten assists, has attracted transfer attention across Europe.

LaLiga champions Barcelona are keen to re-sign the pacey forward, having sold him to Aston Villa in 2015 after just four senior appearances for the Spanish giants.

The Barcelona-born star is desperate to earn a shock place in Spain’s Euro 2020 squad, but is yet to feature for the national team as a senior player.
