Tottenham have reportedly agreed a fee worth £22.75 million with Wolves for Adama Traore, according to Football Insider.
The report claims Tottenham made a breakthrough in talks for the Spanish winger on Friday afternoon, after The Telegraph suggested a bid was already turned down earlier this week.
Football Insider state Wolves have accepted a Spurs bid worth £20 million with an additional £2.75 million in add-ons for performance-related bonuses.
Traore’s contract at Wolves is set to expire in 18 months, but Sky Sports have reported that talks over fresh terms have long been at an impasse.
Spurs first attempted to bring Traore to North London last summer under the tutelage of Nuno Espirito Santo (The Times) but were unsuccessful in their attempts to do so.
But the 25-year-old now looks set to be Antonio Conte’s first signing as Spurs head coach, who has often reiterated the importance of his side needing to be active in the transfer market (The Athletic).
Conte was said to have made Traore a prime target to add to his squad last month and will allegedly plan to deploy him at right wing-back (Daily Mail).
