A product of the famed La Masia, Traore made only one professional appearance for FC Barcelona before being sold to Aston Villa in 2015. After spells in Villa and Middlesbrough, Traore was bought by Wolverhampton Wanderers where his true talent came to the spotlight.

A lethal deploy at the wings, Traore had a stellar 19-20 season under Nuno Espirito Santo. The Spanish attacker raked up 4 goals and 7 assists last season including MOTM performances against defending champions Man City twice.  This helped Nuno to become only the second manager to do a league double over Guardiola.

A player with blistering pace and strong physic, Traore clocked the highest speed of 37.9 km/h. He achieved this in the league game against Chelsea in 2020. He is also rumored to be persuaded by various European clubs such as Man City, Bayern Munich, and Liverpool.

Pep Guardiola was wise enough to realise Walker’s vitality as a right-back. Walker can trackback with ease given his explosive pace. Consistently remaining among the top fullbacks in the league along the years, Kyle has developed himself into a beast on the right flank.

Walker is ever-present in this kind of list. He loves tearing apart opposing defences with ease. He also bangs in crosses to help his team with an extra edge over rivals. Notching up a top speed of 37.80 kmph in the 2019-20 season, he is number one in our list of the fastest players in the Premier League history.
