Newcastle might be set to sign Adam Traore from Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough signd Traore in 2016 from Aston Villa for a  fee of around £7.4 million. Although, his performance has been poor  In the 2016/17 season, Traore made 27 Premier League appearances for Boro. In that time all he could manage was one assist, which if you go back and watch it, was actually just a really bad shot that turned into a pass. Middlesbrough would then be relegated at the end of the 2016/17 season with Aitor Karanka receiving the sack in March 2017. This allowed Garry Monk to take charge at Boro for the beginning of the 2017/18 Championship campaign. Unfortunately, though, Monk proved ineffective both at getting Middlesbrough into the top six and also at being able to get the best out of Adama Traore. Traore had little to no end product. The Spaniard had no problem taking it past four or five players at a time but as soon as it came to crossing or shooting he proved useless. Monk would then be sacked on the 23 of December with Tony Pulis being appointed as Boro’s new manager on Boxing Day.
