Dani Ceballos knows exactly what to expect from Adama Traore in Sunday’s clash with Wolves.
The Spain duo have played together at youth level since they were 16 years of age - and he’s predicting a difficult challenge at Emirates Stadium.
“I think he’s a very special player that any coach in the world would love to have in their team,” Ceballos told the official matchday programme.
“Apart from the fact that he’s really intimidating in terms of his physique, I think he’s really improved on a technical level and in terms of cutting inside or going wide, plus he scores goals too.
“I think Joao Moutinho is a player we all know about too. He’s so important for Wolves because he brings that stability that a team needs and manages the tempo of games. He’s a very experienced player and he’ll go down in the history of Portuguese football.
“Nuno has a very well-drilled side that is really recognisable in that 5-3-2 or 5-2-3 formation. They have a really clear style. I don’t think there are many other teams in the Premier League that are as well-drilled as they are.
“They’ve started very well this season and last year they only missed out on the Europa League because we won the FA Cup. If we want to get a good result, we’re going to need to be at 100 per cent.”
