Wolves transfer news: Tottenham retain an interest in Adama Traore

Tottenham Hotspur reportedly still hold an interest in Wolves winger Adama Traore.

According to 90min, Spurs are still looking to potentially swoop for the Spain international, whom they have liked for a long time now.

Traore was reportedly the subject of a £15 million bid from Tottenham back in January (BBC Sport).

But the player only wanted a move to Barcelona, which he eventually secured towards the end of the window.

The loan move did not work out though, with Traore spending most of his time on the bench after starting off strong initially.

Barca held an option buy Traore, but they did not trigger it.

Traore has since returned to Wolves, and is currently with the squad in Alicante.

He is yet to play any games out there though, having flown out with a hamstring issue.

He temporarily left his teammates to go for a scan in Barcelona.

Traore is now back with the rest of his teammates and it remains to be seen if he’ll get any minutes against Besiktas on Saturday. He has been seen doing individual work, and is issue is not thought to be serious.

Spurs have just signed Djed Spence from Middlesbrough, but 90min say they are in the market for another right wing-back.

Traore, of course, is naturally a winger. But he has played at wing-back a few times before for Wolves.

Whether he would be willing to go to Spurs and play that role more regularly though is another thing.

It has been previously reported that such an ideal did not appeal to the 26-year-old.

So Spurs still hold an interest in Traore, and it would be a surprise to see him go there.

They’ve just signed Spence, and they also have Emerson Royal and former Wanderers star Matt Doherty.

And if Antonio Conte was thinking of using him higher up the pitch, then there’s the likes of Dejan Kulusevski, Heung-min Son, Lucas Moura and Richarlison for competition.

Traore spent a lot of time warming the bench in 2021/22 – both at Wolves and Barcelona.

If he’d going to depart, he’ll surely want to go to a club where he’ll be an undisputed starter.

That said, Tottenham are a Champions League club now, and that is something that could well appeal to Traore.
