Speaking on Switch Podcasts Window, Duncan Castles discussed Adama Traore amid much transfer speculation surrounding the winger.
However, things could turn out differently.
Indeed, Castles claimed that Leeds United were interested in the summer, and journalists can now believe that whites are willing to pay a cash payout of more than £30 million for the winger.
Unfortunately, a deal never came to fruition as Traore had no interest in Elland Road.
What has been said about Traore?
Castles spoke of Spurs and Leeds’ interest in Traore over the summer.
“Wolves have made this a relatively accessible move as they prepare to allow Adama to move to Tottenham on loan with the option to buy a year later. My guide to what happened there was that Nuno felt that Tottenham were never serious about making that move. Leeds United also tried to sign him last summer for more than £30m, but Adama is not interested in a move to Leeds United, he won’t talk to them, so deal That was also passed,” Castles said.
It looks like Leeds are hungry for a lightning-fast winger this summer, and while they didn’t get Traore, they did land Daniel James.
James has been pretty decent at Leeds so far, and he has actually outperformed Traore statistically this term, with the Spaniard failing to score a goal or an assist. create for Wolves this term.
However, that does not mean that Traore is a bad player. After all, he has been described as ‘unplayable’ in the past.
£30m for Traore would be a hefty fee, but his pace and power would make him perfect for Leeds’ play.
