Adama Traore has reportedly re-emerged as a transfer target for Tottenham Hotspur.
According to the Daily Mail, the Spain international is back on Spurs’ radar ahead of the summer window.
The north London giants attempted to sign the 26-year-old in the January window.
They reportedly lodged a £15 million bid (BBC Sport), which was rejected by Wanderers.
Ultimately, the player was then sent on loan to Barcelona – a move that has seemingly been a disaster.
Traore got off to a great start at the Nou Camp, but after just over a month he found himself regularly warming the bench.
It has been reported that Barca have no intention of triggering their option to buy clause, which is thought to be around £29 million.
Joan Laporta has suggested FFP is a factor, and the club president also again hinted they would like to swap Traore for Francisco Trincao.
But it’s possible that Wolves could now join Spurs at the negotiating table.
It hasn’t gone well for Traore at his old club, and it may be that he is open to moving to another club this summer.
Him staying at Wolves is very unlikely, given the fact he has already rejected a contract offer from Wolves.
It has previously been reported that Antonio Conte sees potential in Traore as a wing-back, so it would be a case of whether the player would be on board with that idea.
And, of course, if Spurs put in a good enough transfer offer.
Wolves selling Adama Traore to Tottenham would not be ideal, as Spurs reportedly target Spanish winger again
Wolves selling Traore to Tottenham this summer wouldn’t be ideal.
Spurs are one club that Wolves could potentially get closer to next season, but allowing Traore to join them could harm the club’s chances.
That said, it seems like the chances of Barca signing him are low.
That’s because they seemingly need a straight swap deal with Trincao, but Wolves supposedly don’t want the youngster after an unconvincing season.
In an ideal world, another club from overseas will come calling for Traore. And the club will sell him fairly quickly and use the money received to strengthen the squad.
