Manchester City have joined Manchester United and Liverpool in the battle for Wolves winger Adama Traore, according to reports in the French media.
The Spaniard has been in sparkling form for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, with the 24-year-old no doubt catching the eye of manager Pep Guardiola by scoring three goals in the two league fixtures against his side earlier this season.
However, supporters on Twitter are split over whether Traore would be a good addition to City’s squad:
Imagine him under pep

I think he has the raw ability to be great under pep, just needs his decision making and finishing refining like sterling did, also I think he’d be more happy to be an impact sub than sane and will be so effective on the counter at the end of games

City don't need any player expensive like him. If you want to get a winger just buy a talent like Gustavo Maia🇧🇷 from Sao Paulo before Barça get him and J. Braaf🇳🇱 to the first team. One CB that is the more important City need. Don't think about expensive players..don't need them

Think he would be brilliant after a few years with pep would defo bring him in if Sane goes

We don’t need him we just need to give our academy players a chance

He is excellent and could become even better under someone like Pep, would take him all day.

The likely departure of Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich means City are probably on the lookout for another winger, but Traore generally plays on the right flank rather than on the left-hand side.
On top of that, Wolves have reportedly slapped a £75m asking price on the Spanish winger, which will likely put off any potential bidders.
Traore’s four goals and seven assists in 28 league appearances this season doesn’t suggest he would be worth the outlay, but he is a unique talent who clubs will no doubt be looking at this summer.
