Report: Leeds are interested in Adama Traore; contact already made

Leeds are interested in Adama Traore, with TEAMtalk reporting that the Whites have already made contact with the Tottenham Hotspur target about a potential summer move.

Traore could be on the way back to the Premier League this summer. His loan spell – which included a £29 million option – at Barcelona has not quite worked out, with the Spain international not completing 90 minutes since February.

Reports have claimed that he is set to return to Wolves. Tottenham want Traore after trying to sign the wide-man during the January transfer window.

But TEAMtalk also suggests that Leeds are keen on Traore. In fact, they have already reached out to his representatives about a possible summer deal.

Of course, you would imagine that Leeds’ hopes of a deal rest on Jesse Marsch’s men staying up. They certainly have a lot of work to do to keep themselves in the Premier League.

Traore has the ability to play in a number of positions. So you can understand why he may appeal to Marsch. Like Marcelo Bielsa, the American likes to work with players who can feature in a number of roles.

And of course, there is speculation over the future of Raphinha. Barcelona want to sign Raphinha this summer. And Traore returning to England will increase the likelihood of the Catalan giants making a bid.

Traore has been described as an ‘incredible‘ player by Pep Guardiola. And he clearly has the potential to be a devastating option. But he is yet to realise his full potential during his career.

Leeds will not want to lose Raphinha in the summer. And some supporters would probably not be best pleased if Traore ended up being his replacement.
