The Red Devils have agreed a deal for Ivorian winger Traore, claims Fabrizio Romano.
Traore is not set to join the ranks at Old Trafford until January, so we’ll be keeping an eye on Atalanta in Serie A over the coming months to see if he gets much game time.
From the video compilation below you can see Traore is very direct in his play as a winger and likes to use his pace whilst running at defenders.

You can see why Solskjaer would want to make such an addition to his squad, especially when he speaks continuously about developing young players.
It’s certainly not an alternative signing to Jadon Sancho even though they play in the same position.
