Wolves: Zac Djellab believes Adama Traore could yet be part of Lage’s thinking

|

YouTuber and podcaster Zac Djellab feels that Bruno Lage may yet have a role for Adama Traore to play at Wolves.

The flying Spaniard spent the second half of last season on loan at Barcelona, with the Catalan giants unwilling to exercise the £29m option to buy the winger outright.

He made just four La Liga starts and was often saved for Europa League matches, and after a fast start with four assists in his first five appearances, his form tailed off. 

His spell is perhaps reminiscent of his time at Molineux, with glimpses of sheer quality albeit on an inconsistent basis, with the 26-year-old recording just 29 goal contributions in 154 appearances for the Old Gold.

However, Djellab feels that Lage could still look to use him even after shipping him out to Barca last term.

Speaking on Football Daily’s Sunday Vibes, he said:

“He is a special player, he’s a guy that if [Lage] can get working in the right way, can really, really help [Wolves] out.

“Going and sending him on loan in January shows to me that Bruno Lage was like, ‘I don’t want him’.

“It doesn’t look like he’s going to be leaving, and so maybe he tries and gets a system where he can fit in and make it work.”

TIF Thoughts on Traore and Wolves…

Do you think Traore should be given another chance?

Yes

Yes

No

No

There has been a suggestion that Tottenham still retain an interest in the eight-cap Spain international, with Antonio Conte viewing him as a potential right wing-back, and while that could be an avenue Lage decides to explore, the one thing he will be hoping to do is get the best out of the ‘dynamic’ forward – as praised by Tim Sherwood.

He has scored just eight goals in 160 Premier League matches but was called a ‘very special’ player by former coach Nuno Espirito Santo, and his current boss may decide to keep him at the club and guide him towards producing more regularly which would be more than welcome considering Wolves only outscored the bottom three in the Premier League last season.
