The Telegraph have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are looking to sign Adama Traore on an initial loan deal from Wolves with an obligation to buy him in the summer.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with a move for Traore over recent days, with Antonio Conte alleged to view the pacey wide man as a perfect fit for the right-wing-back role in his system.

According to 90 min, Wolves manager Bruno Lage has given the green light for the winger to be sold amid Spurs’ approach.

The Telegraph have now revealed that the West Midlands club would prefer a straight £20m deal for the Spaniard.

However, it is explained that Spurs wish to sign Traore on a six-month loan deal with an obligation to make it permanent in the summer.

Although that is not ideal for Wolves, it is explained that the club might be forced to accept such a deal since the wide man is showing little interest in renewing his contract at the Molineux Stadium.

Tottenham’s managing director of football Fabio Paratici is said to be in contact with Traore’s entourage, with the former Middlesbrough man thought to be keen on completing a move to North London.

Spurs Web Opinion

As is often the case with Spurs’ transfer dealings, I would not be surprised if this Traore deal drags on until the final few days of the window. Wolves are not in a strong bargaining position and so the Tottenham hierarchy could look to get the 25-year-old as cheaply as possible.

  1. A loan deal with an option to buy?
    Is this because Spurs don’t have any money or doesn’t the club know what they will be getting?
    If Spurs don’t know what Traore can do after 3 years in the PL, then I suggest your scouts need replacing!
    As for a fee of 20m, think again!
    That’s just 2m more than he was bought for 3 years ago and transfer fees have risen tremendously since then, so up the bid to around 25m and you may, just may get the player but forget the loan.
    The full amount, up front!!!
