Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore has admitted the squad need to work on scoring more goals if they are to progress this season.

In an interview with the Express and Star, Traore reiterated his belief that they will start finding the back of the net on a more regular basis.

Wolves have made a solid start to the Premier League campaign, picking up 16 points from their opening 12 matches.

However, they have only scored 12 goals in that period of time, with summer signing Raul Jimenez leading the way on three.

Traore himself has bagged once this term, scoring the last minute winner on the counter-attack at West Ham United back in September.

The 22-year-old moved to Molineux in the summer from Championship side Middlesbrough for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around the £18m mark.

He has featured mainly as a substitute under Nuno Espirito Santo, with Helder Costa and Diogo Jota being preferred as Wolves kept the same starting XI for the opening nine matches.

On Wolves’ scoring troubles, Traore said:

We need to finish our chances – we’re working on it. It’s been a good start but we want to keep going, everyone wants more. There’s room to improve, we can do better in the final end, me too. We’ll get there, we’ll keep working.
