Wolves transfer news: Wolves could sell Adama Traore in January, as Tottenham seek a right wing-back

Wolves could reportedly sell Adama Traore in January to avoid losing him for free in the summer, with Tottenham Hotspur looking to sign a right wing-back.

90min have reported that Spurs are seeking to bring in a player that can operate as a right wing-back.

It is expected that Djed Spence will be loaned out in January. He only signed for Spurs in the summer.

And the club could also sell one of Matt Doherty or Emerson Royal.

It is stated that they are keeping an eye on Kyle Walker-Peters, who of course used to play for Spurs before moving to Southampton.

They’re keen on Norwich City’s Max Aarons, too.

It is then stated that Tottenham are considering returning to previous targets.

Traore is mentioned as a possible option, with Wolves potentially open to selling the Spaniard in January because his contract expires next summer.

Spurs have targeted Traore in each of the last three transfer windows.

Traore has become much more involved for Wolves in recent weeks, having barely played at the start of the season when Bruno Lage was still in charge.

Lately he’s been one of the club’s better performers, and was among the nominees for Player of the Month for October.

So Wolves could apparently cash in on the 26-year-old in the winter window.

But that doesn’t feel like a sensible decision given Wolves’ predicament right now.

Traore’s goals and assists numbers may not be the best. But he’s still a huge threat every time he plays and always has the potential to make something happen.

At this point, surely there is more value in keeping him for the remainder of the season.

It would be extremely annoying to lose a player like Traore for free. But Wolves should perhaps have thought to sell him two years ago whilst his market value was sky high.

Now, there just doesn’t seem much point bringing in a small fee for him.
