Middlesbrough are actively looking for wide players to bolster their attacking options this transfer window, and manager Tony Pulis has made this no secret.

The likes of Jacob Murphy, Kamil Grosicki and Yannick Bolasie have all been linked to Middlesbrough this transfer window, but there is one other player most Boro fans would prefer to see on Teesside this transfer window.

According to TEAMtalk, Middlesbrough are hopeful of a Riverside return for Wolves winger Adama Traore. The Spanish under-21 international departed for Molyneux in the summer in an £18 million deal, but has struggled for form and consistency since his move to the Premier League.

With Wolves looking to loan out the winger, many teams have been put on high alert, with Boro hoping to secure a short term loan deal before the deadline later today.

Iranian striker Sardar Azmoun looks to be in talks with Wolves over a potential £12 million deal today, and could see a domino effect, with Traore being shown the exit door.

The former-Barcelona academy graduate enjoyed the most successful spell of his career last season under Tony Pulis at Middlesbrough. During the 2017/18 campaign, he managed to score five goals and register 10 assists, the fourth highest of any player in the Championship.

Since his move to Wolves, he has scored one goal in 19 top flight appearances, a 90th minute winner over West Ham at the London Stadium. He has been an unused substitute in the last two Premier League games and his manager Nuno Espirito Santo has recently said the Spaniard ‘must improve’, sparking speculation over his future.
