Premier League side Leeds United are still reportedly looking to sign Wolves star Adama Traore this month.
It has been previously reported that Leeds are interested in signing Traore because of the uncertainty surrounding his future, and there’s now been a fresh update about the winger.
Leeds still want Traore
EuroSport have recently reported about Traore’s situation at Wolves, saying that the Spanish winger wants to leave the club this month and he will be available for a fee less than £50 million. The piece states that there is frustration about the failure to tie him down to a new contract and Leeds’ interest has emerged once again.
Can Leeds finance a deal for Adama Traore?
The article says that a deal for the winger could be possible this month if Wolves end up accepting staggered payments as a mode for the move to go through. The player wants to play for Spain in the Euros and Leeds’ interest in the 24-year-old is driven by the Whites’ Director of football Victor Orta – the pair know each from their time at Middlesbrough.
Reigning Premier League champion Jurgen Klopp has previously praised Traore as an ‘unplayable’ opposition. He said: “[Traore] is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable. What a player – it’s not only him but he’s so good.”
Adama Traore could be a great signing for Leeds
While Adama is yet to score even once in all competitions this season and has just one assist to his name, he had impressed for Wolves last season by scoring four league goals and picking up assists as well. He had scored two goals for them in the Europa League too (as per Transfermarkt).
This shows that he does have quite a lot of ability as a winger. While Jack Harrison is an option in the wide position for Leeds, he is on loan from Man City. Helder Costa is also an option for the wings, but the Brazilian has been linked with a move away from Elland Road.
So keeping that in mind, Leeds might need another winger and if they can finance a move, they should try and sign Traore.
