According to the The Athletic, Chelsea are believed to still be interested in signing Wolves winger Adama Traore this summer, but Football London’s Blues correspondent Sam Inkersole believes they don’t need him.
The 25-year-old was recently part of Luis Enrique’s Spain squad at Euro 2020, making just one substitute appearance in the 5-0 win against Slovakia.
As well as playing on the wing, Traore, can also play wing-back and did so under former Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo who opted to play a system with 5 at the back. In his 140 Premier League appearances for Wolves, Traore, has scored seven goals and provided 14 assists.
Two of his key attributes are his pace and power, but Chelsea correspondent Sam Inkersole thinks the Wolves man is hit and miss.
“You can get him on a good day, he’s borderline unstoppable, you just can’t deal with him.
“But then on other games he can be anonymous, but then again that can happen to any footballer I suppose”.
Chelsea has an abundance of talent that can play on the wing, including the likes of Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount. With this many players Sam Inkersole doesn’t believe that the club necessarily have to move for Traore.
“Chelsea don’t need him, they’ve got a plethora of attacking midfielders, wingers at the club already.
“I don’t think it’s a move that Chelsea really need to be making, unless it’s a good deal”.
