Former Leeds United midfielder Carlton Palmer has told Football FanCast in an exclusive interview that Wolves winger Adama Traore is not good enough to play in a top-four side.
According to journalist Duncan Castles, Leeds have made a £30m offer for Traore. However, the 25-year-old has no interest in joining the Whites as he aims for a Champions League level club.
Traore had his struggles last season. While he was able to beat defenders as usual, averaging an impressive 4.1 dribbles per league game (via WhoScored), he was far from productive in the final third.
The Spaniard came up with just four goal contributions in the Premier League, two goals and two assists, and for Palmer, he simply has not fulfilled his potential.
“No, he’s not good enough,” the former Leeds player said. “He has all the attributes to be one hell of a football player, but he hasn’t really fulfilled his potential.
“I don’t see him getting a top–four club at all. I don’t see stability and where he would play at a top–four club.”
Certainly, as mentioned, Traore does have the skill set to be one fine player. However, presently, that lack of an end product is probably holding him back.
