The Athletic have revealed that Wolves are optimistic rumoured Tottenham target Adama Traore will put pen to paper on a new contract with the club.
Tottenham made a late attempt to snap up Traore during the final days of the transfer window but the North Londoners’ offer was reportedly turned down by Wolves.
Bruno Lage’s side allegedly demanded £50m from Spurs for the winger on transfer deadline day, effectively pricing him out of a reunion with Nuno Espirito Santo.
Reports emerged on Saturday that Wolves were ready to make Traore the highest-paid player at the club by offering him a four-year deal worth £125,000-a-week in order to keep him from Tottenham’s clutches.
According to The Athletic’s latest update, talks are progressing well between the parties. The report claims that Traore looked set to sign a new contract at the end of last season but hesitated following Nuno’s departure.
However, talks have now allegedly resumed and it is asserted that all parties are optimistic of a successful resolution.

If Traore does put pen to paper on a new contract, perhaps Paratici and Nuno will regret not going the extra step to snap him up in the final days of the transfer window.
Some might feel that Tottenham did the right thing by not paying £50m for the winger given his unimpressive goal and assist numbers.
However, there are plenty of indications already in the first few games of the season that the Spaniard has taken his game to a new level. We might look back on this in a couple of years as a huge missed opportunity.
