Leeds: Whites make Adama Traore approach

Leeds: Whites make Adama Traore approach -Leeds United News

Leeds United have made an approach over a move for Wolves forward Adama Traore, according to Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Leeds links

Traore, hailed as a ‘game-changer’ for his explosive speed by former Whites striker Noel Whelan, has been linked with a move to Elland Road for some time now.

He was first thought to be on Victor Orta’s Leeds shortlist back in 2020, with rumours circling again recently following his loan spell at Barcelona.

The 26-year-old can play anywhere across the front three, and with Barcelona refusing to exercise their option to make a deal permanent, Leeds have now made their first move with Wolves willing to sell.

The Latest: Source shares update

FI provided an update regarding Leeds and Traore on Monday after being informed by a recruitment source.

They claimed that the Whites hold a strong interest in the Spaniard and have made an approach, with a fee in the region of £18m likely to be enough to seal a deal.

The Verdict: Why?

The report states that Leeds want a ‘pacey forward capable of carrying the ball forward long distances’ – something which they already have in Dan James.

Do you want to see Traore at Leeds?

Yes, definitely!

Yes, definitely!

No, look elsewhere!

No, look elsewhere!

Yes, the Welshman has struggled in front of goal at Elland Road, but he still managed to contribute to nine goals in 35 Leeds games last season and is well-known for his speed.

Traore contributed to just five goals in 40 games in 2021/22, so there is an argument that the Wolves man wouldn’t exactly improve Leeds and almost certainly wouldn’t replace the goals left by Raphinha, should he seal a move to Arsenal, as has been reported.
