Sky: Milan hold talks with Mendes over signing of Wolves winger – Pioli gives green light

By Oliver Fisher -

The AC Milan management are looking at options to come in and strengthen the right wing position with Adama Traore on their list, a report claims.

According to Sky, Milan’s latest idea for the position is Traoré, who would be available on a free transfer given that his contract with Wolves is about to expire and there are at present no signs of a renewal.

Last season he made a total of 40 appearances in all competitions, amassing three goals and two assists. Despite the unimpressive numbers, Milan held talks with his agent Jorge Mendes yesterday over his potential signing.

Stefano Pioli has already given the go-ahead for his arrival, given that he considers Traoré – who is in possession of a Spanish passport – a good rotation option for the right wing and also for the left too.

Roma are also keen on the 27-year-old but the talks with Milan were positive and as such the Rossoneri can close the deal if they want to.

  1. Hmm, I don’t think this would be a good player for us. We need point players. He is the opposite. He only runs and dribbles and doesn’t do very much else. There is a reason noone wants him. He played in Barcelona a couple of seasons ago and only got 4 starts. That was before Barcelona became good again.

  2. Coming off the bench and running riot on serie A slow defenders he will be good.
    He is very good at creating numerical advantages with his speed .
    And he is a free agent, sign him up

  3. For Serie A he will be great. He can dribble and run past the whole team, Pioli only needs to teach him how to cross. 😂😂😂 In any case a backup for RW and LW for not a lot of money. Currently that was Messias or Origi. 100% an upgrade.

  4. With all due respect, I’ve always thought Adama Traore should be playing a different sport – mainly American football. This dude is a unit, strong as a bull, run like a train, BUT can’t pass, can’t cross and can’t shoot.. He’d be a superstar runningback in NFL I think lol.

    He’s free, but aren’t we looking for RW who contributes more than Messias/Saele? Of course, he might just be suited to Serie A and run every left backs in the league to shreds, but judging from his stats (ahem moneyball) so far, the probability of that happening is kinda low.

    1. I think they can teach him how to cross finally. Or just a simple pass to the middle. He only needs to learn that. He can’t be worse than Messias in any case.

      1. “I think they can teach him how to cross finally. ”

        You think? Then how come none of the Milan players have learned to cross after Beckham left the club? There is zero progress in crossing efficiency especially on the right flank.

        Also the “simple pass to the middle” has proved to be quite the challenge for Milan players. Passing back to gk? That can be done – sometimes.

  5. so this is what supposed to the upgrade for our RW? a player who cant offer much goal threats? what a joke..hey POLI,are you still hiding in your cave???

      1. So messias/ salamaekers 2.0 right?
        So we want and buy players that doesn’t score not 5 goals and not 8 assists 👍 . Great this team will not reach this new season in 6th place they will probably finish 8th place at best . These targets aren’t scoring aren’t assist enough to contribute or improve the team stats only degrade them that’s sad

  6. If we have a proper midfield to feed him passes and balls, I think Adama Traore would be really good in Serie A and could run riot on the opponent defences. If we dont have a decent midfiled, he is going to struggle and will not contribute to anything. I agree he isnt the best shooter or passer or crosser but he can learn.

    I say go for it

  7. Perfect signing if its happen, fit into pioli tactics of random running.. none can predicts how or when or will milan score.. not even pioli himself..

  8. I’d love to see him play as a RB for us.. It’ll be a deadly back 4 if he starts contributing in the defence.

  9. I see adama must has changed his position to a right midfielder or a right back and a winger if needed. He lack the right coach to correct from youth sector

  10. Don’t be fooled by the stats. Adama is the most exciting player we have seen at Wolves for years. Ok we are not Manchester City, or Real Madrid but we have had our share of very good players. He offers something different to any other player. I just wish we could persuade him to sign another contract. If you buy him, enjoy him!

  11. Actually, think about how fast our flanks would be with Leao and Traore on each side….. our opponents would not be able to double-man Leao anymore which would make things easier for him too….

    Not a bad idea..
