Tottenham Hotspur are not currently holding talks to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore, according to journalist Duncan Castles.
The Spanish international has been heavily linked with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium over a potential £20million deal (Daily Mail).
Spurs boss Antonio Conte is reported to be keen to turn the jet-heeled winger into a right-wing back, while also being able to provide cover as a forward.
Traore is entering the final 18 months of his contract at Molineux and is yet to put pen to paper on a new deal despite lengthy talks (Express and Star).
Wolves boss Bruno Lage admitted earlier this week that he expects the 25-year-old to remain at the club beyond the January transfer window, having not received a bid.
Traore scored his first goal of the season yesterday afternoon, having netted in injury time to help Wolves to a 3-1 win against Southampton.
Castles claimed that there are no current talks taking place between the two clubs over a switch.
“I’ve just had a message actually, from someone close to Adama. And they’ve told me there are currently no active negotiations with Tottenham or Newcastle at present,” he said on the Transfer Window Podcast.
Traore’s lack of consistency has always been a concern, while there has never been a question over his athleticism. I would much rather see a ready-made right-wing-back arrive at the club, rather than the hope that he could be converted to play the position.
