Wolves right-back Matt Doherty says summer signing Adam Traore can be “unplayable” at times. Signing from Middlesbrough this summer for a club record £18 million fee, Traore is playing for his third different Premier League club since moving to England from Barcelona.
He was present at Aston Villa for their doomed relegation campaign in 2015/16, before facing the drop once again for Middlesbrough a season later.
However, in the Championship last season, the Spaniard finally started showing the talent he possesses and became a key figure in Tony Pulis’s squad as they reached the play-offs before being defeated by Aston Villa, scoring five goals and grabbing 13 assists.
Doherty says he is delighted to have him on board, revealing the difficulties Wolves had in facing him last season.
“We played against him last season and at times he’s unplayable – I’ve not seen that type of running with the ball, pace and power, from anyone,” Doherty said, as quoted by Express and Star.
Traore did not figure in Wolves’ opening day draw to Everton as he recovers from a dislocated shoulder.
