Lage was quizzed on the player’s future following Wolves’s 4-0 rout of Nottingham Forest in the second round of the Carabao Cup last night.
“Yes, I think so [he will stay],” Lage said.
“We want to create a strong side, a better side to be competitive.
“We need competition for a long Premier League season and the League Cup, if players are not fit we need people to come in for them.”
Traore started in Wolves 1-0 home defeat to his rumoured suitors on Sunday, squandering a golden chance to level the game after Dele Alli had put the away side ahead from the spot.
Victory at Forest rewarded Wolves with the opportunity to take revenge on the North London side in the next round.
The English forward and captain had been linked with a huge money move to Manchester City all summer, but quashed the rumours with a tweet outlining his desire to stay.
