In a recent report, AS stated that Chelsea have identified Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore as an alternative to Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi this summer. It is understood that the Blues head coach Thomas Tuchel wants the Spanish speedster to offer competition for Reece James in the race for the right wing-back spot at Stamford Bridge (via AS).
Traore’s Season Of Mixed Emotions In English Football
Traore endured an up and down season at the Molineux Stadium as he struggled to be consistent with his end product in the final third. The 25-year-old registered three goals and three assists in 41 matches for the West Midlands side last season on all fronts.
The Spanish sensation has shown plenty of promise with his performances in the opposition half after he averaged 1.2 shots, 1.5 key passes and 4.1 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He even distributed the ball relatively well based on his pass completion rate of 76.3% in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).
Traore is currently under contract with Wolves until the summer of 2023, so the West Midlands club will be under no immediate pressure to cash in on him during this summer transfer period. Hence, the Blues will have to make a sizable offer to have any chance of landing the Spaniard in this off-season.
What Will The Spanish Attacker Add To Thomas Tuchel’s Side?
Traore is one of the quickest wingers in European football. He can turn on the afterburners to dribble past multiple defenders in the attacking third and can deliver some inviting crosses into the opponent’s penalty area. The five-time Spain international can also chip in with a few important goals for his side but needs to find a way to be more decisive in front of the opposition goal.
His blistering pace and dribbling ability make him one of the most feared wingers in English football, so Chelsea will do well to lure him to Stamford Bridge ahead of the new campaign. If Traore can work on the defensive side of his game in this off-season, he could play an integral role for the Blues on the right side of Tuchel’s midfield.
We can expect the Spanish talent to add plenty of pace and dynamism to Chelsea’s squad. He could serve as a perfect candidate to push Reece James for a place in Tuchel’s starting XI. Therefore, it makes sense for the West London giants to move in for Traore this summer as he has what it takes to be a success story at Stamford Bridge in the years to come.
