A report from Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has explained there are ‘differing noises’ surrounding Tottenham’s pursuit of Wolves winger Adama Traore.
Spurs are said to be closing in on the signing of the Spain international, whose contract at Molineux is due to expire in 18 months (Sky Sports).
While there is said to be confidence that a transfer will soon be agreed (The Guardian), there are different claims from Wolves and Traore’s camp regarding the stage the deal is at.
Last week, The Telegraph claimed that Wolves rejected an opening bid worth £15 million from Spurs with the expectation all disparities would be resolved.
However, Football.London report Spurs had not made such a bid and are ‘surprised’ at Wolves’ suggestion they had turned down a move for the winger.
Meanwhile, Traore’s representatives, who claim he is keen on a switch to North London, believe it is a ‘matter of time’ to be completed and is at a stage where it is close.
It is also suggested that a bid worth £20 million would be enough to see a deal materialise, contrary to reports claiming Wolves could demand in excess of £30 million (Birmingham Mail).

The deal for Traore has dragged out which is less than ideal, but hopefully, we will see any loose ends tied up in the coming days. Wolves wanted a lot more for him in the summer so it is understandable why they are wanting as much as possible for him mid-season.
