Everton want to see a bit more consistency from Wolves’ Adama Traore if they are to make a move for him, the club’s former striker Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast.
Traore is a player Everton have looked at before, with ex-boss Roberto Martinez revealing last December that he scouted the winger during his time at Goodison Park.
Kevin Phillips also suggested recently that Traore is someone Nuno Espirito Santo probably would have targeted if he had taken over at the Merseyside club.
From what Bent has heard from inside Everton, though, Traore is not exactly at the top of the Toffees’ transfer shortlist in this moment of time.
“On the basis of what Everton are saying, they’re basically saying they need a bit more consistency,” the retired forward said when asked about the Premier League outfit potentially moving for Traore.
“One week he’s a world-beater, the other week he’s literally not even on the pitch.”
All things considered, it is probably a fair assessment, with Traore only managing to score two league goals last season while sometimes finding himself out of the team.
Everton could still sign a new winger this summer, however. According to Football Insider, strengthening the right flank was a priority for the club’s former manager Carlo Ancelotti.
