Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Middlesborough speedster Adama Traore.
Traore begun his career at Barcelona. Having made one La Liga appearance for the Catalan giants, he moved to then Premier League side Aston Villa in search of regular first-team football.
There was a buy-back clause included in the deal that saw Traore move to Villa Park, but Barcelona did not appear to have any intention in re-signing the Spaniard.
Traore’s greatest success has come with Middlesbrough, where he has scored five goals in 26 Championship appearances so far this campaign.
That isn’t the type of C.V we often see with players linked with Chelsea, but Traore has incredible, raw talent. He’s incredibly fast, a superb dribbler, and we appear keen to give him a chance to impress at the top level.
The Mirror report that Chelsea are plotting a £30M move to sign Traore ahead of the summer transfer window. It’s claimed that promotion to the Premier League may not be enough for Tony Pulis’ side to keep hold of Traore, amid interest from the Blues.
Would you be prepared to pay that much for a player unproven at this level, Blues?
