Despite experiencing a frustrating Euro 2020 campaign thus far on a personal level appearing for just 14 minutes over four games, Adama Traore still has the ability to become a world class player and one that Leeds United should be targeting, according to former midfielder David Norris.
Traore was touted with a potential exit from Wolves last summer but the club’s £70 million price tag put off any potential buyers, but now the price has dropped significantly to £35 million and that is something a lot of teams may now see as feasible.
Will Wolves sell Traore?
Marcelo Bielsa can call upon the likes of Raphinha, Jack Harrison and Rodrigo to play out wide but all three of them have the same sort of ability and build, so bringing in someone like Traore who is in many ways one of a kind could be a game-changer.
“I think that’s the type of player Leeds should be going for as he’s proven it in the Premier League and I don’t think that would be so much of a risk.
“If he can get consistency, then he can be a world-class player and I think he is the type of player that if the price is right, could be a good signing for Leeds.”
The Spain international is coming off the back of his worst season for Wolves in terms of attacking output since 2018/19 when he started just eight games, as he managed just two goals and two assists in a side that did largely struggle in the final third scoring just 36 goals, the fifth-lowest in the Premier League.
Victor Orta once claimed that Traore could be the most exciting prospect in Spain and the Director of Football also signed him for Middlesbrough, which was where Wolves signed him from.
