Wolves fans have taken to Twitter to heap praise on Adama Traore after they watched their side book a spot in the Europa League group stages with a 2-1 win against Torino at Molineux on Thursday night.
Goals in each half by Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker were enough for Wolves to clinch a 5-3 aggregate win against the Serie A side, who looked very threatening at times over the course of the two legs.
One of the stand-out performers this week was Traore, who appears to have really kicked on in the opening weeks of the new season with a few impressive displays.
The former Barcelona and Aston Villa attacker was on top of his game once again this week with stats by WhoScored saying that the 23-year-old completed five successful dribbles, three tackles and one key pass, which ended up being the assist for Jimenez’s goal in the first half.
It was a display that Wolves fans had been hoping to see from Traore ever since he joined the club from Middlesbrough last year and some supporters on Twitter have understandably been drooling over what they saw.
Traore excellent tonight in defence and attack #wwfc

These fans have been particularly impressed by Traore’s improvement this season and after watching his latest displays, you have to agree that the ex-Barcelona player is looking like a new signing for Wolves.
Traore has assisted three goals in five appearances during Wolves’ Europa League qualifying campaign yet last season, he only managed to supply three assist in the whole year.
The 23-year-old has always been praised for his pace, power and ability to beat a man but critics have always slammed his lack of final ball or cutting edge.
He is certainly proving those critics wrong with performances like this.
Traore is improving game by game

The transformation of Traore is nothing short of brilliant. Still needs a little work – needs to release the ball quicker sometimes and can still improve his final ball but what a player we’ve got on our hands. #wwfc

It will be very interesting to see whether or not Nuno Espirito Santo names Traore in his starting line-up for Wolves’ clash against Everton away at Goodison Park on Sunday.
Traore started over Matt Doherty as the right-sided wing-back in the win over Torino on Thursday but the former Spain Under-21 international is yet to start a game in the Premier League, with two appearances off the bench to his name.
He made a huge impact in the 1-1 draw against Manchester United but after impressing from the off against Torino, there is proof that Traore is more than just an impact player.
Traore was absolutely outstanding tonight. Got to be first choice Sunday ???????????? #wwfc
