Traore could bring zest to Wolves’ wide areas, but signing him is a risk

Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore, according to The Sun.

What’s the word?

Wolves blew everyone away in the Championship last season as they stormed to the title with a nine-point lead.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side played some attractive football, but they will be tested this season when they take on the likes of Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and the rest of the Premier League’s elite.

According to The Sun, one man who is believed to be on Wolves’ radar with the hope of adding some pace to wide areas is Middlesbrough’s Traore.

The 22-year-old moved to the Riverside Stadium in 2016 following a disappointing season at Aston Villa.

Is Traore good enough?

The right-sided player failed to reach his potential at Barcelona after coming through the rankings.

He also did not have the best start to his career in English football as he flopped at Villa.

However, at Middlesbrough, particularly last season, the winger performed well by scoring five goals and creating 12 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions.

Traore brings with him skill, but he has also shown signs of bad behaviour.

Last season, he showed up late for the team bus, and with regards to on-pitch antics, the winger was sent off twice.
