Alasdair Gold has revealed that he would not be surprised if Tottenham were still keeping an eye on Wolves winger Adama Traore, with the potential of a late move. 

Reports over recent days have indicated that Spurs are on the lookout for an attacking addition to replace Bryan Gil if the winger returns to Valencia on loan (The Athletic).

Anthony Gordon was mooted as a target for the North London club, although Chelsea are thought to be competing for the Everton starlet’s signature (Football Insider).

Additionally, Atalanta’s Ruslan Malinovsky (TuttoMercatoWeb) and Leeds United’s Dan James (The Daily Mail) have also been linked with the Lilywhites. 

It was reported last month that Tottenham could reignite their interest in Traore after failing with a move for the Wolves star in January (Pete O’Rourke via GiveMeSport).

The 26-year-old has just a year left on his contract at Molineux Stadium and it has been suggested that he could run down his deal and leave as a free agent next summer (The Athletic).

However, Gold has remarked that Fabio Paratici is a big fan of the Spaniard and he wouldn’t be surprised to see a late move to replace Gil. 

When asked if there are any other potential attacking options Tottenham could go for instead of Gordon, the journalist responded in a Q&A on Football.London: “I wouldn’t be shocked if Spurs are keeping a close eye on the Adama Traore situation with regards to a late move if Bryan Gil heads off on loan. 

“I don’t think you could get more different in terms of size and strength than those two players! Personally, I think Gil will become the better player but Paratici does love Traore.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It was widely reported back in January that Conte was eyeing Traore as an option for the right wing-back role. Now that we are well stocked in that position, I doubt if Spurs would reignite their interest in the Spaniard.

However, having said that, I do believe that the 26-year-old would prove a useful weapon off the bench against tired legs if we are chasing a game. His contract situation also means that he would be inexpensive.
