Former Tottenham Hotspur star Graham Roberts believes Adama Traore should not sign a new contract at Wolves if he is looking to play at a higher level. 

The Spaniard was linked with a move to Spurs over the summer which would have represented a reunion with former Wolves boss, Nuno Espirito Santo.

Spurs tabled a £30 million bid for the 25-year-old before the transfer deadline which was rejected by Wolves, who were insistent on holding out for a minimum £50 million. 

Traore has just under two years remaining on his current deal at Molineux, but reports have emerged claiming the West Midlands side are planning to open talks with his representatives over an improved contract. 

However, ex-Spurs man Roberts believes it would not be a good idea for the winger to commit his future to Bruno Lage’s side, especially if he is keen on progressing with his career. 

He told Football FanCast: “If you’re Traore and you’re looking to play at a higher level, why would you sign a new contract at Wolves? It doesn’t make sense.”

Spurs Web Opinion 

Should Wolves and Traore manage to agree on a new deal, figures at Spurs may see this as a missed opportunity to acquire one of the most feared wingers in the league.

Opinions were definitely split over Wolves’ £50 million valuation, though, with many looking at his production rate as one reason to give him a miss.
