Adama Traore is good for Liverpool and Manchester City – Former Chelsea star Cundy

The 50-year-old feels that the striker has developed to the level where he can now play for the Premier League giants.

Former Chelsea defender Jason Cundy has supported Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Adama Traore to play for Liverpool or Manchester City in the future.

The sprinter has been offering impressive performances this season for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, scoring four goals and providing nine assists in 31 league games.

His performances have contributed to Wolves’ fifth place in the Premier League table and several European clubs have been fighting for his signature.

The 24-year-old public service player has recently been linked with newly crowned Premier League champion Liverpool.

Cundy, who is impressed with the development of the former Aston Villa striker, believes he could fit into any of the best clubs in the world.

“Adama Traore, he is good enough for Champions League soccer,” Cundy said on talkSPORT.

“I think he has reached the type of heights with his quality in the last third now, his delivery, his knowledge now and he has learned from his own mistakes.

“When I first saw him at Aston Villa, he was all beat and no end product, even in Middlesbrough was a bit like that.

“But now, fair play for Nuno Espirito Santo, to get [to this level], must have worked tirelessly on the training ground.

“And it is with both feet: he put a shiny cross with his left foot [against Bournemouth].

“He can fall deeply, he can travel with the ball, he is incredibly strong, his footwork is excellent with the ball and without the ball, the way he moves it, his rhythm, his strength.”

“I think it’s good enough to put him in Liverpool, you could put him in the City and not only would he not look out of place, I think he could come to a place where he could really demand a place in the first team.”

The 24-year-old forward began his career with Spanish giants Barcelona, ​​joining the team’s youthful makeup in 2004.

He later moved to England to team up with Aston Villa in 2015 before his stunning displays caught the attention of Middlesbrough and they signed him in 2016.

Traore was born in Spain, but is eligible to perform in Mali, his parents’ country, and has previously stated that he has not yet decided on his international future.

He’ll look forward to continuing his flashy displays when the Lobos face Arsenal in their next Premier League game on July 4.
