Adama Traore says he had other offers last summer before choosing to stay in England and sign for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
As reported by the Birmingham Mail, Traore moved to the Midlands in a club record £18m deal from Middlesbrough after Nuno Espirito Santo’s men won promotion to the Premier League.
The 23-year-old has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular this term, with 15 of his 21 top-flight appearances coming from the substitutes bench.
Having come through the Barcelona youth academy it is clear that Spaniard has the potential to impress in England and he admits that he has not been good enough this campaign.
Traore also revealed that Nuno is working on turning him into a striker to add more versatility to his game.
On the transfer interest in him last summer, he said:
I had different options in Spain and Germany but I wanted to stay in England. My agent told me I had the option to go away from England but I said, ‘no, I want to stay and improve, I want to prove to everyone in England how good I am’. I want to prove I can play in the Premier League. It was an easy decision.
The winger is likely to be on the bench for Wolves’ trip to AFC Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon with the club reverting to a wing-back system in recent weeks.
