Steve Bull: Leeds-linked Adama Traore is 'world beater', Elland Road move unlikely
Steve Bull has insisted that Wolves winger is far too good to play for Leeds United, who have been linked with a move all year.
The Whites have been linked with a move for the speedster all year, with Victor Orta and Marcelo Bielsa big fans of the former Barcelona man.
The Molineux legend has labelled Traore as a “world-beater” and believes that he could move to Spain or higher up in the Premier League.
Speaking to Football Fan Cast, Bull shut down all possibility of Traore ending up at Elland Road during the summer window.
“He’s too good to play for Leeds, that’s no disrespect to Leeds, but if he’s going to go anywhere, he will go to a top-four club or go back home to Spain,” he said.
“When he turns it on, he’s a world-beater, but I’m hoping he stays and wherever Nuno goes won’t tempt him, but I can’t see him going to Leeds.”
We can’t tell if Bull is being serious with this verdict, because it is a joke if so.
Traore played for a Wolves side that eventually finished four places and 14 points behind the Whites, so in what world would he be too good to play for us?
The bigger question would be whether he would be good enough to start ahead of the likes of Raphinha and Jack Harrison, two players who significantly outperformed him.
The Spanish international scored twice and delivered two assists in 37 Premier League appearances last season, and that included 28 starts.
Harrison and Raphinha both smashed double figures in goal involvements, and are the perfect players for our system.
Bull has just been silenced with ease, and it once again proves that rather than doing research, pundits would rather just shut Leeds down when possible.
Too good? You can keep him.
