As revealed by our sister title, the Yorkshire Post, Boro are bracing themselves for bids for Traore after an impressive season.

The 22-year-old, who was linked with Chelsea and Everton earlier this summer, was the standout performer as Tony Pulis' side reached the play-off semi-finals.

The Post suggests that the asking price for Traore could be as little as £15million - half his rumoured valuation earlier this summer.

Benitez was linked with a swoop for the attacker last season and has long been an admirer of Traore's talents.
