According to FourFourTwo, Tottenham Hotspur could make Wolves winger Adama Traore their first signing of the January transfer window.

Tottenham were heavily linked with a move for Traore towards the end of the summer transfer window, with reports claiming at the time that the club’s offer for the winger was turned down by Wolves.

The 25-year-old ended up staying put at Molineux and has struggled to have much of an impact in the final third this season, not having registered a single goal or assist across 19 appearances in all competitions.

The Telegraph claimed a couple of weeks ago that Tottenham retained an interest in the pacey winger ahead of the January transfer window. 

FourFourTwo have now backed up that claim, revealing that Traore could be the first player that Spurs move for this month. The report states that Conte has identified the Spain international as a potential fit to play at right-wing-back.

In addition, it is asserted that Wolves might be tempted to cash in on Traore in order to raise funds to pursue Bruno Lage’s transfer targets.

Spurs Web Opinion

The inability of our wing-backs (both Reguilon and Emerson) to take players on one vs one, is certainly costing us in the final third. The idea of converting Traore into a right-wing-back is certainly interesting and one that I am excited to see. 

Given that the 25-year-old has just 18 months left to run on his contract at the Molineux Stadium, perhaps Wolves will consider a decent offer for the winger this month.

  1. If Conte plans to play a 3-4-3 formation, where would Traore fit in? Our priorities should be a back-up for Kane and upgrades on our central midfield.
