Adama Traore Has Been Approached By NFL Teams And You Can See Why

Adama Traore was approached by NFL teams when at Barcelona according to current Wolves teammate Romain Saiss.

Traore has been a revelation at Molineux this season with his blistering speed and strength making a big impact.

It seems that his physical qualities were also identified by American football teams, according to Saiss.


"I see him every day, because we are in the gym together, before or after training," Saiss told RMC Sport per

"Maybe he has a hidden gym room in his house, but at training, in any case, he never pumps iron, whether it is bench-press or otherwise. He is huge and very quick.

"I remember saying to him: 'You run like an American footballer'. He responded to me that at the time that he played in Barcelona, NFL teams tried to get him to playing American football instead, that's how explosive he was.

"There are people who say that it is not possible, that he cannot be playing football."


Saiss' claims that Traore doesn't participate in any weight lifting also lines up with the winger's explanation.

Traore told Spanish publication Marca back in 2018:

"I train every day with my physical coach, people ask if I do weights or on social media they ask if I take something or what I do, but I don't, it's just prevention and physical work, I don't do work to get muscle because I get muscle really quickly.


"No, I haven't lifted a single weight. I know people won't believe it, but it's true."

Traore has become one of Wolves' most influential players this season as they challenge for a top six spot.

He's even been linked with an audacious £80 million move to Manchester City in January, although it seems rather unlikely.


It would certainly be interesting to see the Spaniard try his hand at being a running back in the NFL however.

There's no doubt he'd be one of the quickest players on the pitch regardless of the sport he plays.
