Adama Traore divides opinion amongst Wolves fans and neutrals with some seeing him as a great talent with defenders unable to get near him, whereas others see him as a winger who runs down blind alleys with no end ball.
Despite his often shortcomings, Wolves legend Steve Bull believes it will cost £75 million for him to leave this summer.
Traore was an ever-present under Nuno Espirito Santo, especially last season with the injuries to Raul Jimenez, Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto leaving the Spaniard as the only Premier League proven attacker as he ended up missing just one game.
Will Wolves sell Traore?
There has been talk of Thomas Tuchel looking at the Spain international this summer as an alternative to Achraf Hakimi, who looks set for PSG, but after his relatively brief showing at right back for Spain against Slovakia, he wouldn’t have done anything to fill his potential new manager with joy.
His raw pace and willingness to drive at defenders and get his team further up the pitch can be a valuable asset for whichever team he’s playing for next season, but he certainly won’t come cheap as Wolves legend Steve Bull explained exclusively to Transfer Tavern:
“If Harry Kane is worth £120 million then Traore is worth £70-75 million easily and if the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea need a goal in the last 10 minutes of a game then he could get it for them.”
The Spaniard will be disappointed with his time at the Euros thus far for Spain as he failed to get off the bench in their previous two games and was handed just 14 minutes in their commanding 5-0 win over Slovakia on Wednesday.
The £43,000 per week winger would likely love a move to Chelsea especially if his role is going to differ a huge amount or is not fancied under Lage as his talent is undoubted when he’s on top of his game and Leeds’ Director of Football, Victor Orta, once claimed he could be the best talent in Spain during his time at Barcelona.
