Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp was aghast by Adama Traore’s poor record during the 2020/21 campaign.
The 25-year-old was heavily criticised by segments of the Molineux faithful after the 0-0 draw against Aston Villa on Saturday, where Wolves extended their record to three games with a win in the Premier League.
Traore has not scored for Wolves since December 2019 and has not made any form of goal contribution all season, which is a complete contrast from the four goals and nine assists he provided last term (WhoScored).
This led to many Premier League clubs taking a strong interest in the Spaniard’s services, particularly Liverpool and Manchester City, who were told they would have to pay an eye-watering £75m (via SoccerLink).
Before Wolves’ stalemate with the Villains took place, Redknapp could not believe Traore’s figures and did not sugarcoat his thoughts when expressing his opinion.
“He’s not had an assist or a goal this season – I nearly fell off my sofa,” he told Sky Sports (via Football Daily).
“That’s not good enough for a player of his quality, I couldn’t believe it. But he still has the most successful dribbles – it doesn’t make sense.”
Transfer Tavern Verdict
These are fair comments for Redknapp to make and Traore cannot argue. Considering what he managed to achieve last season with the West Midlands outfit, he will know himself that his performances have been well under par in recent months.
Traore is in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons at the moment, coupled with the fact that 2020 signing Fabio Silva has not been able to find his feet, makes his lack of attacking prowess even more noticeable.
