Adama Traore can often look like one of Barcelona’s biggest mistakes but, other times, he looks like Wolves have found nothing more than an average player.
However, Wolves legend Steve Bull believes that he can be a world-beater on his day.
Traore’s best season in the Premier League was during the 2019/20 campaign, returning four goals and nine assists as Wolves finished 7th in the top flight. Those numbers saw him linked with a huge money move to Liverpool last summer.
But outside of that season, he has managed just three goals and five assists across four separate Premier League seasons, which highlights how frustrating a player Traore can be to watch, as he can turn a match on its head or could easily cost you multiple great opportunities.
There is no doubting that Traore has great talent and ability when he gets going at Molineux and despite those days being few and far between now, Bull still labels him as a world-beater and he made the bold statement exclusively to Football FanCast:
“He’s a talented player but he is also a frustrating player to watch because when he turns it on, he is a world-beater. He’s a world-beater more than the times he spends on the floor.”
Traore has been linked with a move away from Molineux as the Wolves hierarchy find ways to raise funds for new manager Bruno Lage. Should he stay, though, you would expect Lage to utilise his talents.
Wolves boast an illustrious rank of wingers at the club with Traore, Pedro Neto, Daniel Podence and Morgan Gibbs-White, who can also play on one of the flanks.
