The Lowdown: Leeds linked with Traore
The Whites have been heavily linked with a move for Traore once again this summer, with reports towards the end of June suggesting that an approach had been made regarding the Spaniard. Victor Orta is thought to be a big fan of the 25-year-old, who is entering the final 12 months of his contract at Molineux.
Football Insider shared an update within their story when talking to Campbell, revealing that Leeds and Everton are still keen on Traore, who Wolves are now willing to sell for around £10m due to the player’s contract situation.
The Latest: Campbell’s comments
Talking to Football Insider regarding Leeds’ interest and Wolves’ discounted price, Campbell believes that Jesse Marsch could have ‘something serious’ with the likes of Traore, Jack Harrison and Luis Sinisterra on the books in Yorkshire, not even mentioning Dan James.
The Sky Sports pundit said of the Spain winger:
“I think for £10m – there will be quite a few teams in for him. But for the way that Leeds play, he would be a right handful – that’s for sure.
“Adama Traore on one side, Jack Harrison or Luis Sinisterra on the other – wow, that would be something serious.
“It’ll be interesting to see where he ends up but for Leeds United to be in for players like that, it just shows the ambition.”
The Verdict: Avoid?
Leeds could do with a forward who has played as a number nine regularly, something Traore has done just 33 times during his career.
Club Brugge’s Charles De Ketelaere and PSG’s Arnaud Kalimuendo have both been linked with moves to Elland Road and are players who have more experience of occupying a central role, while also being able to play out wide if required.
Do you want to see Traore at Leeds?
No, look elsewhere!
That could be the wiser move by Orta and co, especially as Patrick Bamford missed large parts of the previous campaign through injury, leaving youngster Joe Gelhardt with plenty of responsibility up front in what was a nervy run-in for the Whites.
