Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore has told the Express and Star that he will take his chance when offered a start at Molineux.

Traore has impressed since joining Wolves in the summer transfer window, but he has generally been used as a substitute.


Traore has still never started in the Premier League, but he insists that he will force his way into Nuno’s side when he is given an opportunity.

“I am passionate so I want to start, but I am still working 100 per cent when I come off the bench and I will wait for my opportunity to start and I will take it," the £18 million signing said.

“But the most important thing is that the team wins and we perform well.”

There must be question marks over whether Traore can stick by his promise at Wolves though.

Traore has been given the nod twice in Wolves’ EFL Cup matches so far this season, but he has failed to impress.

When playing from the start, Traore has shown signs of weakness in his game.

The winger is unquestionably a threat, but against fresher opposition defenders, his final ball has been poor.

And it may be that Traore is simply more useful as an impact substitute at this moment in time.
