Lille OSC midfielder Adama Traore has become a very hot commodity, and it appears several Premier League giants are eager to sign him.
According to the Express, the three clubs that have won the last 11 Premier League Championships – Chelsea, Man United and Man City – are all lining up for the Ligue 1 midfielder. Though his performance for Lille has not exactly been over the top, his performance in the recent U-20 World Cup opened a lot of eyes.
Not to be confused with the Barcelona wonder-kid with a similar name, Traore recorded four goals and three assists in seven matches for Mali at the FIFA U-20 World Cup this past year, winning the coveted Golden Ball in the process. Mali finished in third place in the tournament behind Serbia and Brazil
Among the most recent winners of the Golden Ball are Juventus superstar Paul Pogba, Man City & Premier League-leading scorer Sergio Aguero and a fairly-popular Barcelona forward named Lionel Messi.
