Oleksandr Zinchenko to undergo Wolves medical on Thursday ahead of £16m transfer

Wolves complete signing of winger Traore

Wolves' £16 million move for Oleksandr Zinchenko is said to have collapsed, leaving the newly-promoted side scrambling for last-minute reinforcements.

It's believed Wolves are due to speak to the 21-year-old today in a bid to convince him to move to Molineux from the Premier League champions.

Traore moved to the Riverside from Aston Villa two years ago.

After failing to score in 27 Premier League appearances when Boro were relegated in 2017, he scored five goals in 36 matches as Tony Pulis' side were beaten by Villa in the play-off semi-final. Although the Ukrainian worldwide would have beefed up their arsenal further, they still have a formidable side to ply their trade in the Premier League.

The club had lined up a medical for him on Thursday afternoon, but Zinchenko has not left Manchester, and it is understood he wants to stay at City and fight for his place.

"His efforts were reflected with a triple award win at Boro's End of Season Awards, which has led to Traore's return to the Premier League with Wolves".

He becomes Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo's fifth recruit of the transfer window, following goalkeeper Rui Patricio, defender Jonny Castro Otto, midfielder Joao Moutinho and forward Raul Jimenez into the club.
