Diogo Jota blown away by 'unique' Tottenham transfer target
Last month, it was reported by 90Min that Spurs are still interested in long-term target Traore as he enters the final months of his Wolves contract.
That interest even pre-dates Antonio Conte’s arrival at Tottenham, although the report says the Italian is a huge fan of the 26-year-old.
In an interview on YouTube, Jota made it clear he is a huge admirer of Traore too, having played together with him at Molineux.
Jota hails Traore
When asked if the rapid wideman was the fastest man alive, Jota said: “Yeah, I think so!
“I trained with him every day when he was at Wolves and he’s unbelievably quick.
“He’s also very strong, so even if you guess the way he is going, he just knocks you out.
“He’s a unique player, really, I would say.”
Traore’s physical characteristics suggest he is a player with great potential to go to the next level of his career, but he has not yet shown that in English football.
Wolves have played him in a variety of positions, from right wing-back to centre-forward, although he still looks best suited to playing as a winger.
We are still waiting for that consistency, and as a potential free transfer in the summer, he is certainly worth a club taking a punt on him.
Whatever happens next – and Traore has said it depends on Wolves whether he stays or not – Traore will be looking to put in a consistent season of goals and assists soon.
