Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore would be open to joining Tottenham Hotspur this month.

That is according to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano, who was speaking on his Here We Go podcast.

Just one week remains now until the transfer window closes.

And it seems Traore could be the most likely player to depart Molineux.

He is being heavily linked with Spurs, where he would obviously link up with ex-Molineux boss Nuno Espirito Santo.

The noise seems to have increased since Traore stood out against Tottenham on Sunday in the Premier League.

The 25-year-old was a constant menace for Wolves, and gave Japhet Tanganga and Davinson Sanchez a very difficult time.

According to Romano, there isn’t currently any agreement between Wolves and Spurs over Traore. They are pushing to sign him.

But he has said that the Spaniard would be prepared to make the move to north London, which is the first we’ve heard about how the player feels about things.


He said (15:30): “He is the main target. They (Spurs) are working on it. Still nothing agreed with Wolves about the fee of the player.

“He is the priority for Tottenham. The player would be prepared to join Tottenham – he’s open.”

It has previously been reported that Wolves would demand a significant fee for the star.

Some have said the club would want more than what was received for Diogo Jota (around £45 million, BBC Sport).

A worrying update

Traore being open to moving is not great news.

It means there could be potential for him to push for an exit from Molineux

Wolves are said to want to retain Traore, and they should if Spurs don’t come through with a big enough offer.

However, there’s potential for Traore to push for an exit and Wolves have to think about the consequences of keeping a player who has no desire to stay.
