Chelsea handed boost in signing Adama Traore

Chelsea have been handed a boost in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Adama Traore this summer.

The Spain international had an average 2020/21 campaign, but found form towards the end of the season.

Wolves are planning for big changes this summer, and they are open to selling their high-profile players to recoup funds.

Traore has been placed in the transfer market, and The Athletic claims that the Blues are weighing up a possible approach.

Thomas Tuchel considers him as an option for the right wing-back role, with his extreme pace and dribbling skills on the counter-attack.

He is valued at around £50m by the Midlands outfit, but could be prised away for less with the limited competition this summer.

The Blues are also interested in Inter Milan's Achraf Hakimi, but he is valued at nearly £70m by the Serie A champions.

They have recently proposed a part-exchange deal worth £43m for the Moroccan, with Emerson acting as the makeweight.
