Former Wolves striker Marlon Harewood has warned Nuno Espirito Santo against selling Adama Traore this summer in an exclusive interview with Football FanCast.
Traore was in excellent form for Wolves last season, finishing the 2019/20 Premier League campaign with nine assists. However, the 25-year-old has not been able to replicate that kind of form this time round, with that tally dropping down to one this term.
And now, according to the MailOnline, Traore could be on the move, as Wolves are willing to listen to offers once the transfer window opens again. For Harewood, though, selling the Spanish attacker would be a huge mistake.
When asked if Wolves could replace Traore, Harewood told FFC:
“I don’t know. I don’t think they could, to be fair, because he’s been another phenomenal player that’s gone on and taken things on. His speed, his power, everything. Obviously he just needs to add the extra bit of goals to his performance, but he’s a player that would be missed by Wolves and they will have to try and keep hold of him.”
While Traore certainly has not been at his best this season and still needs to work on his end product, failing to score a single league goal in the current campaign, Wolves would be losing that X factor in their side if they do end up selling him.
He is still arguably the best dribbler in the Premier League, with few players being able to carry the ball in the same manner that he does. The former Aston Villa and Middlesbrough winger is currently averaging 4.1 dribbles per game, the most in the Premier League (via WhoScored).
