In a recent edition of the Transfer Window Podcast, Duncan Castles stated that Leeds United are ready to launch a £30m move for Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore this summer. It is understood that the Whites are prepared to break their transfer record to acquire the services of the Spanish speedster in this off-season (via The Transfer Window Podcast).
Traore’s Unimpressive Form In English Football
Traore endured an underwhelming season at the Molineux Stadium recently as he struggled to be productive with his contributions in the final third. The 25-year-old banged in just three goals and provided three assists in 41 appearances for the West Midlands side in the previous campaign across all competitions.
However, the Spanish wide player deserves some plaudits for averaging 1.2 shots, 1.5 key passes and 4.1 dribbles per game in the Premier League. He even distributed possession relatively well in the opponent’s half after completing 76.3% of his attempted passes in the top tier of English football (stats via whoscored).
Traore still has a contract with Wolves until the summer of 2023, so Bruno Lage will be under no immediate pressure to cash in on the talented wide player during this summer transfer period. At 25, he is about to embark upon the peak stage of his career which makes him a good option for the Whites to pursue ahead of the new campaign.
Will Traore Be The Right Choice For The Whites?
Traore is one of the quickest wingers in European football and can often leave his marker to bite the dust when he decides to turn on the afterburners in the opposition half. He excels at taking on multiple defenders and can get to the byline to whip in some inviting crosses into the opponent’s penalty box.
The Spain international is a strong and athletic wide player who can also offer some decent defensive protection for his teammates at the back. However, Traore is in dire need to be more clinical in the attacking end of the pitch if he wants to taste success at the highest level.
The Wolves wing wizard will undeniably add lots of pace and power to Marcelo Bielsa’s frontline. He could even offer some serious competition for Rodrigo in the race to secure the right-wing spot at Elland Road in the coming seasons. With all things considered, Traore will be a good choice for the Yorkshire giants to consider before the start of the new campaign as he might help them secure a top-half finish in the upcoming Premier League.
