Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly hoping to land Wolves star Adama Traore on loan this month, with an obligation to buy at the end of the season.
The Telegraph have reported Spurs are looking to convince Wanderers, who know the Spaniard’s value will only dip if they don’t cash in this month.
Traore has 18 months left on his contract at Molineux, and hasn’t shown any signs he is willing to extend.
Tottenham are keen on Traore, with Antonio Conte supposedly interested in converting him into a possible right wing-back.
The north London club are also reportedly looking to offload Steven Bergwijn, with Ajax linked with the Dutch forward.
Apparently Spurs are hoping to land to Traore on an intial loan, before paying Wolves a set fee in the summer.
The Telegraph also float the idea of Tottenham making staggered payments for Traore. The majority of the agreed fee would then be paid in the summer.
The report adds that Traore would indeed be keen to make the move to north London.
Wolves must demand payment in full this window for Adama Traore
Wolves simply cannot accept a deal for Traore that doesn’t involved payment up front and in full.
Loaning Traore out and receiving the cash in the summer just doesn’t make any sense for Wolves.
They’d be losing a player, and would seemingly then not have the means to bring anyone else in.
It is widely accepted that Wolves need Traore’s sale if they are to make any significant additions this month.
Chelsea are supposedly now keen on Traore. Wolves should look to negotiate with them instead if Spurs aren’t going to pay at least £20 million right now.
