Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adams Traore has reportedly signed an agreement with super-agent Jorge Mendes to help him facilitate a move to Tottenham this summer, according to Cadena SER.
Traore has been linked with a move to North London, with Spurs head coach Nuno Espirito Santo keen to reunite with the powerful winger after their success together at Wolves.
Spurs reportedly had an opening bid for Traore turned down recently, which was structured as a £5 million loan fee plus an option to buy at the end of the season.
It has been noted that Wolves are reluctant to sell this summer, and value Traore at upwards of £40 million as a direct transfer.
But Spanish outlet Cadena SER now report the powerful winger has contacted agent Mendes, in the hope that he can ‘exclusively negotiate’ a switch to N17.
The report claims that any sort of move would include a fee in the region of €40 million, with Wolves planning to use around half of that to facilitate a transfer for Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes.
It would, however, be a race against time for this type of domino effect to occur, with the transfer deadline fast approaching on the evening of August 31.

As we approach the end of the transfer window, crazy domino effects in the market will begin to take place, with clubs looking to finalise their squads until January. Mendes is a massively experienced agent and will know how to facilitate such moves, but ultimately it’s a case of whether Spurs are bold enough to provide the figure Wolves desire.
