Tottenham remain locked in talks with Wolves to sign Adama Traore but no agreement has been reached as of yet, according to The Athletic.
Spurs reportedly had a £15 million bid for the Spain international rejected by Wolves last week but there is confidence that a deal will materialise in the coming days (The Guardian).
The Athletic claims Spurs are still in negotiations with the Midlands outfit, who are said to be holding out for a fee in the region of €25 million (£20.9m).
The report states that although there is no agreement in place currently, Spurs plan to return with an improved offer in the coming days to coerce Wolves into accelerating a deal.
Traore’s contract at Wolves is set to expire in the summer of 2023 and a talk of fresh terms have been at a standstill over the last few months (Birmingham Mail).
He has started from the bench in each of the last three games but scored his first Premier League goal of the season against Southampton over a week ago.
Antonio Conte has made the 26-year-old a top target for his side this month and it is expected that he will be deployed at right wing-back to provide competition for Emerson Royal (Daily Mail).

It is only a matter of time until this deal materialises as it is a case of small fees before an agreement is reached. Maybe it could have been done much earlier, but leaving it this late will have pressured Wolves into a slightly cheaper sale this month.
