Leeds told to U-turn on 'devastating' Traore after 'cheap' price tag revealed - Campbell

Kevin Campbell has suggested Leeds United should reconsider their transfer stance on Adama Traore after his “cheap” price tag was revealed.

The former Arsenal and Everton striker, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, heaped praise on the 25-year-old and claimed he can be a “devastating” player on his day.

This site revealed Wolves are willing to sell Traore for a knockdown £30million fee this summer after talks over a new contract reached a stalemate.

Leeds were linked with the Spain international in January, while Eurosport claimed last month that an offer would be tabled in the next transfer window.

However, Football Insider understands the Yorkshire giants are not pursuing the wide man, even though his price tag has plummeted.

When asked if Leeds should re-evaluate their stance on Traore, Campbell told Football Insider“His success will depend on where he ends up.

“He is a player who can be devastating on any given day though.

“He is a weapon worth having in your team or squad. You have to account for him because if you don’t, he can beat five or six players and stick it in the back of the net, or put a devastating cross onto the head of the striker.

“Last season he was a lot more consistent than he has been this season, that’s for sure. But even then, I think £30million is cheap money!”

Traore was close to agreeing a new Wolves contract including a pay hike last October but negotiations have been placed on the backburner.

This led to speculation he could leave the Midlands club three years after he joined from Middlesbrough for a then club-record fee of £18million.
