Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in signing Adama Traore from Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer, according to The Express.

Antonio Conte still wants Tottenham to sign another forward despite bringing in Richarlison from Everton for around £60million, including add-ons (The Guardian).

Spurs have lost Steven Bergwijn to Ajax in a deal worth £26million (BBC Sport) and are also set to see Bryan Gil depart to Valencia on a season-long loan move (Fabrizio Romano).

Spurs were in the mix to sign Traore back in January, but he ended up moving to Barcelona on a six months loan deal (ESPN).

Xavi Hernandez’s side opted against activating the buy option in his loan contract, which has seen him return to Molineux this summer (Fabrizio Romano).

The Spanish international’s current deal with Wolves is set to expire next summer, and the repeated attempts to renew his contract have resulted in failure.

That has prompted the North Londoners to strongly consider the prospect of securing Traore’s services in a cut-price deal, with Fabio Paratici being a keen admirer of his talents.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Signing another attacker would make sense now that Gil is in line to leave for Spain once again for the campaign. However, Traore being the option is a bit puzzling as his primary position is on the right wing, where Conte already has Dejan Kulusevski and Lucas Moura.

If a forward addition is on the agenda, then it would be best for the London-based club to look for left-wingers who can provide backup for Son Heung-Min. Richarlison is an option, but he is likely going to be the one to play second fiddle to Harry Kane, giving all the more reason to look for a left-sided attacker.

  1. Buy Adama Traore asap, his box to box pace and power will scare the life outta any defence opening opportunities for our strikers, when faced with pace and power defences make mistakes, Adama will exploit this and will be a great asset to the team.
