Alasdair Gold has mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici could decide to look at Adama Traore if Bryan Gil leaves this summer.
Fabrizio Romano has already revealed that Gil is close to rejoining Valencia on a season-long loan deal this summer, and Tottenham were previously in the mix to sign Traore last January, but lost him on loan to Barcelona at the end (ESPN).
Traore will see his current contract at Wolverhampton Wanderers expire at the end of this campaign, with the Spanish winger having turned down several offers to extend his deal beyond next summer (The Express).
Previously, Bruno Lage admitted that his club could decide to sell Traore in this window if potential suitors place the right kind of offers on the table (The Independent).
Now, Gold has revealed that Paratici is a massive fan of Traore and was keeping a close eye on him ahead of their Premier League clash last weekend.
The Football.London correspondent also conveyed how the chief wanted to sign the 26-year-old during his time in Turin, which could prompt him to target the attacker once again.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Gold said: “Some people are bewitched by him, and Fabio Paratici is bewitched by him, my goodness before that game against Wolves I was watching Paratici and he was just staring at his crosses in the warm-ups and I could just tell he was looking at him.
“He loves him, he absolutely loves him. He wanted to sign him at Juventus for a big fee I was told, so I would be stunned if that’s not an option they look at if Gil goes out of the door.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
If Gil is set to depart, then signing a forward to replace him would make sense, although Traore does not fit the bill as he plays on the right wing. Perhaps, the latter should be viewed as an option when he becomes a free agent.
