Wolves transfer news: Club reject £15 million bid for Traore from Tottenham

Wolves have reportedly rejected a bid from Tottenham Hotspur for Adama Traore.

The Telegraph are reporting tonight that the north London club have actually now put an offer on the table for the Spaniard.

Traore, who got his first goal of the season at the weekend, has just 18 months left on his contract at Molineux.

For months he has been linked with a move away in this window.

The speculation has not gone away because there has seemingly been no progression with the contract talks between him and the club.

Sources have suggested a release clause has been a stumbling block.

Now Spurs have come in with an offer of £15 million for the 25-year-old. But Wolves have rejected it.

It has previously been reported that Wanderers are looking for around £20 million if they are to sell Traore.

It remains to be seen if Spurs will return with an improved offer which meets Wolves’ reported asking price.

£15 million bid from Tottenham isn’t enough for Traore, Wolves are right to reject

He may only have less than 18 months left on his contract, but Traore is easily worth more than that.

Wolves are quite right to turn the bid down. Especially since there are other clubs supposedly keen, such as Chelsea.

If Spurs really want to land Traore this month, they are going to have to offer at least £20 million. That is a more than fair asking price.

Either that, or they need to throw in a player on top of another £15 million offer.

At the end of the day, Traore is one of the most unique players in football.

He may not always be consistent. But there is no doubting he is a threat whenever he is on the pitch.
