If there’s one thing Wolves fans will miss if Adama Traore leaves the club, it will be that mesmerising dribbling ability.
Speculation continues to swirl about the Spaniard’s future at the club.
Traore is into the final 18 months of his contract now.
Bruno Lage would love for him to stay, as would Conor Coady and likely many other Wolves players.
But there has been no movement on him signing a new contract. And while that’s the case, rumours won’t go away.
It is thought Tottenham Hotspur remain keen to sign Traore. Apparently, Antonio Conte would like to convert him into a right wing-back like he did with Victor Moses at Chelsea.
Traore’s former club Barcelona are also thought to be interested.
There is a very real possibility that Traore could depart in the next two weeks, and fans will no longer get to see his dribbling on a regular basis.
It is the thing that makes Traore so fascinating to watch.
Combined with his incredible physique, Traore in full flight is one of the scariest things in football.
The Other 14 have today published some dribbling data, and Traore’s numbers are just frightening.
Traore has had 100 dribbing attempts so far this term. He has been successful with 81 of those, giving him an 81% success rate.
He is actually second for number of dribbles behind Allan Saint-Maximin (136). But his success rate is much higher than the Frenchman’s (63%).
The player with the second-highest success rate is Southampton’s Kyle Walker-Peters with 75%.
The list includes players from non-Big Six clubs, who have made a minimum of 30 dribble attempts.
Just astonishing dribbling numbers from Adama Traore
Traore’s dribbling is absolutely fantastic to watch.
He may not always produce at the end, but one things he never fails to do is get the crowd out of their seats.
He may well leave the club this month.
It might be in Wolves’ best interests to sell. But it would surely be a very reluctant move if Wolves did cash in.
Traore is totally unique, and his dribbling ability will be badly missed if he does depart.
