Multiple sources, including Football.London’s Alasdair Gold have revealed that Wolves are standing firm amidst Tottenham’s late attempt to snap up Adama Traore.

Traore has been heavily linked with a move to Spurs over the last week, with the pacy winger even alleged to have hired Jorge Mendes in order to facilitate a transfer to the North London club.

It was reported until this morning that Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were keen on snapping up the Spanish international.

However, over the last couple of hours, various outlets have suggested that the deal looks unlikely to go through.

Gold has stated that Wolves are ‘standing firm’ and Tottenham are not hopeful of getting a deal for Traore over the line before this evening’s deadline. The journalist remarked that it is a deal the Lilywhites could revisit in the future.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports have suggested something similar, claiming that the Black Country club will only entertain an offer of £50m or more for the winger, who has two years left on his contract at the Molineux Stadium.

The Athletic’s Jack Pitt-Brooke has posted the same update, asserting that Tottenham are not expected to sign an attacking player before the deadline after Wolves ‘called off’ the Traore deal.

With Traore having just two years left on his contract, Wolves are taking a risk by rejecting £40m for him unless they believe he will sign a new deal.

If the winger is keen on joining Spurs, then the Tottenham hierarchy will likely be thinking they could get him for a lower fee in January.
