Middlesbrough to slap huge fee on head of star attacker to ward off Premier League interest



Middlesbrough will demand £20m for winger Adama Traore, in a move designed to deter onlooking Premier League clubs from making their move.

The impressive speedster, who helped Boro to a playoff place last season with five goals and ten assists throughout the season, has drawn plenty of admiring glances after putting in some impressive showings last season.

And now, according to Alan Nixon, the club want to put off any potential buyers by slapping a huge sum on Traore’s head, in a move they hope will be enough to keep hold of their former Barcelona star.

Traore signed for Boro in a move from Aston Villa, after initially moving to England from the Catalan club and failing to make much of an impression. However, since making the move to Teeside, he has finally shown signs of developing his talent, and the likes of Everton and West Ham are known to hold an interest in the 22-year-old.

Boro fell at the semi final stage of the playoffs last season, losing out to Aston Villa over two legs. Manager Tony Pulis will be keen to keep hold of his star man, and will probably have no intention of selling Traore unless a giant bid comes in.

Boro fans, what do you make of this? How much is Traore worth? Let us know in the comments!
