With Thomas Tuchel making use of wingbacks in his first six months in charge at Chelsea, Adama Traore is being considered as an option for that position if Chelsea are unable to land Achraf Hakimi of Inter Milan. Traore would be a cheaper alternative to the Moroccan and has Premier League experience which Hakimi lacks, but he doesn't necessarily fit the typical Chelsea mould.
This move could likely transpire as Hakimi is also wanted by PSG who have a lot more money than Chelsea. Traore would also be able to improve his defensive qualities under Tuchel as well as his end product. The signing of Traore would also mean that Reece James will still be able to play at right wingback as well as at centre-back which he began to play at the latter end of the season.
Adama Traore transfer odds to Chelsea are at 2/1.
