Adama Traore would take his game to the next level by completing a move to Chelsea this summer, according to Dean Windass.
Traore has been linked with a move away from Wolverhampton Wanderers and a host of clubs are keeping tabs on the lightning-fast winger.
While Leeds United have expressed an interest and the Spain international could reunite with ex-Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo at Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea are also in the running to secure his services.
The 25-year-old scored just three goals in 41 appearances last season as Wolves finished 13th in the Premier League standings.
Windass, who also featured for Middlesbrough during his playing career, believes Traore should head to Stamford Bridge if the opportunity comes before the transfer window closes.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, Windass said: “He would go to the next level because he would work with better players.
“If Wolves are asking for up to £70million for him, it would not surprise me one bit.
“The only reason why I’m saying he would be good enough to go to Chelsea is because of his pace. They would be able to develop his technical ability and he is not so strong on his left foot. He’s got to work hard on his weaker foot.
“If he signs for a club like Chelsea, with the coaching staff they’ve got and the players there, he’s going to automatically improve his game.”
