Leeds transfer: Whites reportedly trying to determine how much PL rival want for 25-year-old; prepared to pay £40m
Leeds United are trying to determine how much they would need to spend if they hoped to sign Adama Traore during the summer transfer window, according to a report from Eurosport.
The Whites have been linked with a surprise move the Spain international for a little while.
And it appears that they are, indeed, looking at a potential move.
According to Eurosport, Leeds are trying to work out how much it would cost to sign Adama. It is suggested that they would be prepared to pay around £40 million for the 25-year-old.
Leeds may be taking risk amid Adama Traore transfer reports
Adama did not have the best year this past season. He ended the campaign with two goals and two assists in the Premier League.
Admittedly his performances were often a lot better than his statistics would suggest. It was his strike that settled the Molineux meeting with Leeds with the ball coming down off the woodwork and in off Illan Meslier.
Nevertheless, it would be a gamble to pay so much for the winger.
Leeds have some outstanding wide options in Jack Harrison and Raphinha. Meanwhile, other areas of the squad arguably require more urgent attention.
On his day, Adama is simply unplayable. And if Marcelo Bielsa is confident that he can get the best out of him, he could prove to be an inspired signing.
Wolves meanwhile, will reportedly have to sell if they hope to buy big names this summer. So there may certainly be scope for a deal to be done.
But it could be a risk from the Whites to make their move for the former Barcelona starlet given the figures potentially involved.
