Journalist Dean Jones was talking about all things related to potential Premier League transfers this summer, which involved Leeds United.
Traore joined Wolves in the summer of 2018 from Middlesbrough for a fee believed to be in the region of £18m after spending two seasons in Teeside. He’s now valued at £36 million (as per Transfermarkt).
Asked whether Marcelo Bielsa deserves to be backed in the transfer market to bring in someone like the Wolves winger, Jones believes Traore is certainly a player which Leeds will look at over the summer given the success they’ve had out wide with Raphinha this season and the recent backing they’ve received from 49ers Enterprises.
“Yeah, 100%. I mean, Adama is somebody that they’ve had their eye on since the start of the season, pretty much, maybe even before,” Jones said.
“And that’s part of this new investment is definitely they have in mind that would be going towards a deal for him. So we’ll see whether that can come off.”
Should Leeds sign Adama Traore this summer?
TIF Thoughts on Jones’ Traore link to Leeds…
Traore was awarded the Wolves Foundation Player of the Season award for the 2019/20 season after scoring four goals and recording nine assists in the league and that is the sort of form which has gained him interest from other clubs.
Raphinha has been linked with a move away from Elland Road this summer with Liverpool reported as being interested and we believe Traore could make the perfect replacement if the Brazilian is to leave Yorkshire this summer.
