Wolves fans react as report makes Adama Traore and Matt Doherty claim

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly considering a fresh approach for Wolves star Adama Traore – and could offer Matt Doherty as a sweetener.

The Athletic are reporting Spurs are still keen on the Spaniard, having wanted him in the last transfer window.

Wolves were able to keep Traore out of their clutches on that occasion.

But time is running out for Wolves if they want the 25-year-old to sign a new contract.

His value will likely drop significantly, and so Wolves are forced to consider selling.

It is estimated his current value is around £20 million. That is much lower than a couple of years ago.

Apparently, Spurs ‘would be willing to let Doherty return to Wolves to make up part of the fee’.

Doherty, of course, left Molineux in 2020 to join the north London outfit in a move that has not really worked out for the Republic of Ireland international.

Doherty has failed to establish himself as a regular, and Spurs signed Emerson Royal in the last window.

One might have thought he’d have a better experience playing under Antonio Conte, who is known for using wing-backs.

Doherty has made six appearances since the Italian’s arrival, but has again failed to convince.

And then Ki-Jana Hoever is another option for Bruno Lage. The young Dutchman has big potential, and has done well when filling in for Semedo.

Here’s what some fans have made of the Doherty claim:
