Adama Traore has developed into a phenomenal footballer and athlete but is he at the level to force his way into “any” top side?

Adama Traore has been linked with the Wolves exit door for most of the season.

The muscular super fast winger has terrorized defenders in the Premier League all season.

It has raised the question, how on earth was he allowed to escape the clutches of Barcelona’s youth academy.

Traore is thought to be on the wanted list of many of Europe’s elite. With Manchester City, Liverpool Real Madrid, and even his old club Barcelona considering a bid for the Spaniard.

Retired England defender Joleon Lescott thinks he can play for any of the top clubs.

Speaking to Football Index, he thinks Traore has answered his critics.

He said:

“Adama Traore has the ability to play for any side in club football. Traore could easily play for a Manchester City or Liverpool. I have never seen such speed and strength on a football pitch before.”

“Before this season, there were question marks over his game management and his final product, but he has really improved over the last 12 months.

“Traore has simplified his game and has taken his foot off the pedal. He used to sprint at his absolute fastest to beat defenders which meant he had no time to deliver a telling cross or shot.

“He now beats defenders only running at 80% which has given him that extra bit of time he needs to make the position count with a goal or assist. He was a star in the Premier League this season.”
