There will always be a manager ready to gamble on Wolves’ Adama Traore, claims Express & Star journalist Luke Hatfield.
Traore continues to be linked with some big clubs, including Premier League rivals Chelsea as they look to build on their European success.
Is Traore good enough for Chelsea?
Last season, Traore was not at his best. He scored just two goals and provided the same amount of assists, a drop off from the nine he registered the campaign prior.
Even so, Hatfield believes managers will always be attracted to the Spain international. He told FFC:
“With Traore, I think everyone will always take a punt on him. There’ll always be a manager willing to take a punt on someone like Traore, particularly at that higher level where they think, you know, they can coach the best out of him.
“We’ve not seen a consistent Adama Traore really, maybe apart from the season before last. If he can get back to that, he’s certainly a player who’s worth a serious amount of money.”
While his end product is still not quite there yet, or at least not consistently, Traore still brings a lot with his dribbling.
Averaging 4.1 dribbles per game last term, no Premier League player made more (via WhoScored), so you can see why the former Middlesbrough man is attracting interest this summer.
