legend Steve Bull has backed Adama to become a “world-class” player as believes playing for the Spanish national side will significantly develop him as a player. 

Traore started his career at Barcelona’s famous La Masia academy, before spells at Aston and Middlesbrough led the Spanish international to sign for Wolves in 2018.

He has been criticised during his time at for his lack of end product as he recently went 11 months without scoring and there began to be serious questions on his lack of end product.

However, Bull believes if he can become more consistent in games, he could go on to be one of the best wingers in the world, as he could reach a “world-class” level.

Speaking to Football FanCast, Bull had this to say:

I think if he can get that balance right of being able to perform for 90 minutes rather than just 45-60 minutes then he could be a world-class player.

I think he’s been called up into the Spain squad so that might bring him on a bit more and I think he could be a world-beater but all I can say is I hope he does it at Wolves.”

TIF Thoughts on Adama Traore’s potential…

There’s no doubting that Traore, on his day, is absolutely fantastic, having proved this before in big moments for Wolves.

However, Traore ended the 20/21 campaign with only three goals and three assists in 41 appearances (via Transfermarkt). If Traore is able to replicate similar performances like the one against Manchester City in October 2019 on a more frequent basis, perhaps his ability wouldn’t be questioned as often.

However, having been stripped of his target man, Raul Jimenez, for much of the 20/21 campaign, it may only be fair to judge Traore’s numbers when Jimenez returns.
