Newcastle United

Is this hit and miss winger the man Newcastle United need next season?

Newcastle fans by the bar are feeling indifferent about their side weighing up a big money move for Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore.

The Spaniard, who often frustrated last season is on the market.

Adama’s superb dribbling ability often meant nobody could take the ball off him, but unfortunately his end product let him down too often.

The 21-year-old started his career with Barcelona, appearing mainly for the reserves, signed with Aston Villa in 2015, and a year later Middlesbrough paid £7m f0r him.

Now Rafa Benitez’s side have been linked with the forward, but is Adama too much of a risk?

The fact is, the trickster doesn’t get it right all that often.

Whether Benitez is prepared to nurture his raw talent in such a crucial season for Newcastle remains to be seen.

Traore’s electric speed, strength and footwork sets him apart from other wingers, which the Gazette say has inclined Boro to set his valuation into double figures.

After a successful loan spell last season, Benitez has secured Christian Atsu on a permanent deal from Chelsea.

However, there is a forward position up for grabs after Yoan Gouffran’s recent departure.

The Magpies could go all out with this one and sometimes high risk, reaps high reward.

What do you think Newcastle fans? Would you take a punt on Adama? Let us know in the comments below…
