'Not convinced' - Exclusive: Danny Mills doubts Wolves player who clearly has potential
Danny Mills admitted he isn’t convinced that Wolves attacker Adama Traore is good enough to join Tottenham at the moment.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England international admitted he thought Traore was too much of a raw talent who at times didn’t know himself what he was going to do with the ball.
Mills ripped into Traore’s end product as it isn’t always the best and suggested he wouldn’t be capable of replacing Heung-Min Son or Lucas Moura at Spurs.
When asked if Spurs should be swooping for Traore, Mills told Football Insider: “I think he’s too raw.
“He’s a raw talent, he’s unpredictable, in fact, I don’t think he always knows what he is going to do with the ball.

“He’s absolutely physical specimen, he looks more like a Rugby League player than a footballer.
“He’s got phenomenal pace, you can tell that, sometimes his end product isn’t of the highest quality but undoubtedly he’s got talent, he’s got potential.
“But is he ready to replace Son or Moura in that position…I’m not convinced just yet.”
Traore has scored four goals this season, as well as racked up six assists, in the 26 appearances he has made across all competitions.
In his 2018/19 campaign, the Spanish winger managed to score only one goal, while getting three assists, in the 36 outings he made for the Premier League side.
Traore has been a member of Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad since joining Wolves from Middlesbrough in 2018 and he is contracted to stay with them until 2023.
