Chelsea have been linked with Wolverhampton Wanderers player Adama Traore on Tuesday – and some Blues fans on Twitter are very excited by today’s transfer rumour.
Dean Jones reports that Chelsea are ready to rival Tottenham for the signature of the 25-year-old Wolves star.
Traore, who’s renowned for his blistering pace, is being linked with an exit from Molineux this month.
The Spaniard is an exciting attacker that gets fans off their seats, but the lack of end product in his game really holds him back. For instance, he’s yet to get a goal or assist in 21 appearances across all competitions this season for Wolves.
Chelsea fans want him
Despite some underwhelming statistics, a selection of Chelsea supporters on social media want Traore to complete a move Stamford Bridge in January.
He’s shown in the past the versatility to play as a right wing-back, something that Thomas Tuchel’s Blues lack right now given the current injury to Reece James.
Perhaps Traore needs a change of scenery from Wolves to restart his career, so a move could make sense for him.
However, any move to Chelsea would surely only be as cover in the squad. In comparison, London rivals Spurs are in more desperate need of improving their starting XI under Antonio Conte.
If a manager can find a tune out of him, they’ll have quite the player on their hands. Traore has all the physical attributes to be an elite player, but needs to piece everything together and massively improve his decision making.
