According to Lyall Thomas of Sky Sports, Tottenham’s interest in winger Adama Traore hangs in the balance after Wolves reiterated that he is not for sale.
Bruno Lage’s side rejected an initial loan move with an option to buy from Spurs, which would have seen the jet-heeled Spaniard be reunited with former manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
The pair worked together for three seasons at Molineux between 2018 and 2021, with both playing their part as Wolves returned to the Premier League and established themselves as regulars in the top tier.
Wolves were quick to reject the loan offer from Spurs, and Sky Sports now claim the north London side remains indecisive on whether they should return with an improved bid.
Traore has just under two years remaining on his current deal at Wolves, meaning the Black Country side are firmly in control over setting the winger’s valuation.
They have reportedly reiterated to any potential suitors that Traore’s value starts upwards of £40 million, should a transfer happen this summer.

A potential transfer Traore definitely splits the opinion of Spurs fans alike. Wolves are entitled to demand a fee of £40 million for a player that is so key to them, but many are quick to point out whether it would be worth it, as his goal and assist statistics flatter to deceive. He is, though, an undoubtedly massive threat that can open up the pitch and offer a different squad element.
