‘One to keep an eye on’ – Dan Kilpatrick on Spurs-linked winger admired by Paratici

The Evening Standard’s chief football correspondent Dan Kilpatrick has suggested that Tottenham’s interest in Adama Traore could be one to keep an eye on ahead of the transfer window closing.

Tottenham were heavily linked with a move for the Spanish international during January (ESPN) only for the winger to join Barcelona on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 26-year-old is out of contract at Wolverhampton Wanderers at the end of the campaign and is said to have already rejected a number of opportunities to extend his stay at Molineux (Daily Express).

Speaking exclusively to SpursWeb, Kilpatrick told our Twitter Space: “I think that Adama is definitely one to keep an eye on just by virtue of the fact that clearly he’s admired by Paratici, he was a target in January obviously, and his contract situation means that there’s potentially a kind of bargain to be had there.”

“I think obviously he would massively divide opinions, I’d be really interested to see it happen just because it would be kind of great to see what people made of him and what Conte more importantly could make of him.”

It’s no secret that Paratici is a fan of the pacey winger, however, any potential move for Traore could hinge on Bryan Gil’s future with Antonio Conte having made it abundantly clear that if any member of his squad departs, a replacement must be sought.

Whether Traore would be prepared to be a bit-part player at Tottenham is questionable, unless, he is finally prepared to adapt and become a right wing-back, however, Spurs are already well stacked in the position with Emerson Royal, Matt Doherty and Djed Spence available for selection.
