The Times have revealed that Tottenham’s opening offer to sign Adama Traore on loan with an option to buy has been turned down by Wolves.
Reports emerged on Monday that Spurs had stepped up their interest in Traore, less than 24 hours after the winger produced a dominating display against the Lilywhites, who came away with a hard-fought 1-0 win from Molineux.
Nuno Espirito Santo is thought to be keen on reuniting with the pacy wide man at Tottenham and it was alleged the North London club were set to accelerate talks regarding a loan deal for Traore with a view to making it permanent for £40m.
90 min even claimed that Wolves were expected to accept Spurs’ offer for the 25-year-old.
However, The Times have now reported that Tottenham’s loan offer for Traore has been turned down by the West Midlands club.
It is explained that Spurs’ offer included a loan fee of £5m and an option to purchase Traore next summer, while Wolves want a guaranteed sale.
Bruno Lage’s side would thus only accept a loan deal for Traore if it comes with an obligation to purchase the player next summer.

It would make no sense for Wolves to sanction any loan without an obligation to buy Traore. However, I do feel that Spurs can push through a deal for the 25-year-old as the winger has just two years left on his contract and Wolves will know that his value will diminish substantially unless he signs a contract extension.
