Wolverhampton Wanderers made Adama Traore their club-record signing in the summer transfer window when they paid Middlesbrough £18million to sign him.
However, according to a report by the Birmingham Mail, it appears Molineux was not the only possible destination for the 23-year-old.
It is understood the pacy winger had options in Spain and Germany, however, he has e revealed as to why he opted to join Nuno Espirito Santo at the Premier League’s surprise outfit.
“I had different options in Spain and Germany but I wanted to stay in England,” he said.
“My agent told me I had the option to go away from England but I said, ‘no, I want to stay and improve, I want to prove to everyone in England how good I am’.
“I want to prove I can play in the Premier League. It was an easy decision.”
It is not a real surprise to hear that Traore had other offers on the table, especially from clubs abroad following a really impressive Championship campaign with Middlesbrough.
However, he has since found this season a little difficult at Wolves, as he is having to generally feature from the substitutes bench, although that could be down to the sheer amount of quality that the club has to offer at the moment.
Once he gets his chance, Traore will certainly justify why Wolves made him their club-record signing in the summer and he will surely show just how good he can be in the Premier League in the next few years of his career.
