A top-notch player, reportedly joined Leeds in public by Garry Monk ...

This week, Adama Traore has been linked with Leeds United.

According to TeamTalk, Leeds football director Victor Orta is genuinely trying to sign the Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer.

The Whites came within a hair of being relegated back into the Championship this past season, securing their Premier League status on the final day of the campaign.

In a bid to see if the Elland Road outfit survives, or is relegated next season, recruitment is going to be huge.

Patrick Bamford is on record as he describes the Spaniard''s rating, and he described him as an exceptional in 2018 via The Northern Echo.

Bamford was also managed by former Leeds manager Garry Monk at Middlesbrough.

Monk remained modest in favor of the player, especially during an interview back in 2017.

Monk publicly criticized Traore for his unacceptable behavior, which led to him being dropped from the squad at the time.

Monk said: In terms of Adama, he was late for the bus, and you can''t be late for the bus. We dont accept that. That''s why he was not in the squad. Those are the rules that must be adhered by everyone. We were going, and he missed the time, and thats why he was absent.

The Spaniards'' versatility is questioned because, after all, there is a reason why Barcelona signed him on loan during the second half of last season.

There is also a reason why they don''t take him to Camp Nou permanently, especially if it''s due to consistency or a lack of.

Monks remarks highlight a player who was unorganised five years ago and although Traore is much older and hopefully wiser now, he remains an enigmatic figure and one who isn''t guaranteed to be a success at Leeds, if he does go.

Adama Traore may join Leeds United as an opportunity, but it may be considered a gamble for others.
