Former Bordeaux winger Amadou Traoré is on his way to the MLS after signing a two-year contract with Kansas City. The youth star was a Paris FC product before leaving for les Girondins’ academy in 2015.
Since signing professionally he has made 20 appearances with the first team and another 37 with the second team. The French winger has also made appearances with the France U16 and U17 teams.
During his time with the youth national team, Amadou was an up-and-coming player but had difficulties finding the back of the net for club and country. However, Like many players from Paris, he is a great dribbler and should do well in the MLS with his size and speed.
If the former Paris FC academy product can work on making more crosses he has all of the attributes one would look for in an MLS player. Additionally, he is still only 20-years-old with plenty of time to grow into the player he has shown signs of being.
