The Sun have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur want to spend £50m on the signings of Wolves winger Adama Traore and Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos.

It has been reported by multiple sources over recent weeks that Antonio Conte wants to bring Traore to Spurs and covert the pacy wide man into a right wing-back (The Telegraph and FourFourTwo).

Talks between Tottenham and Wolves for Traore are thought to be ongoing despite the North Londoners seeing their first offer for the 25-year-old being turned down by the West Midlands club (90 min).

Meanwhile, The Daily Mail reported on Thursday that Spurs are battling Newcastle United for Carlos’ signature.

According to Fabrizio Romano, The Magpies are now leading the race for the Sevilla star after having agreed on personal terms with the defender.

However, The Sun now suggest that Spurs are looking to snap up both Traore and Carlos before the transfer window slams shut.

The report reveals that Newcastle’s opening £30m offer for the Sevilla centre-back has not proved successful.

It is asserted that the Magpies are still hopeful that they would reach a breakthrough in their negotiations with the La Liga club for the Brazilian.

Spurs Web Opinion

I do expect Spurs to reach an agreement with Wolves for Traore. However, I have my doubts over whether we will be able to push through a deal for Carlos.

I suspect that Conte would prioritise signing a striker and an attacking midfielder this window more than he would a central defender.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Then when are we going to sign the top quality we need?
    Put the money we were supposed to have bid £60m for Martinez on a bid for Vlahovic, or was that bid a non starter as you always do Levy? he makes phantom bids to try and fool the fans.
    Either start signing top quality or go.
    Levy, Lewis and ENIC OUT !!!
