According to The Atheltic’s Tottenham Hotspur correspondent Jack Pitt-Brooke, Tottenham Hotspur had struck an agreement for Adama Traore but then went quiet on the deal.

The journalist claimed this on the ‘From The Lane’ podcast, revealing that Spurs ‘agreed on a deal with Wolves’ but then wanted to ‘assess what else might else might be out there’.

The winger has been strongly linked with a move to Tottenham this transfer window and a potential deal would see Traore reunite with former manager Nuno Espirito Santo.

Pitt-Brooke claimed that Spurs had an agreement with Wolves to sign the winger on loan and then pay for him next summer, but then went quiet on the deal.

He said: “Certainly this week they have been thinking and talking about Adama Traore from Wolves.

“My understanding of this is that they had agreed on a deal with Wolves, which was more or less that Adama Traore would come on loan to Spurs this season, and then they would buy him next season.

“But Tottenham didn’t quite want to complete this deal while they spent another few days assessing what else might be out there.

“This was a few days ago, so I’m not exactly sure what the situation is right now with Traore.”

There is now just a matter of hours remaining before the summer transfer window slams shut for good.

This feels strange given the limited time left in the window. If an agreement was met but you then pull out, what was the point in entering negotiations? We will see if Spurs go back, but it appears maybe their attention has switched to right-back Emerson.
