Tottenham Hotspur reportedly remain keen on securing a deal to sign Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Adama Traore.

Speaking to Chris Cowlin’s YouTube channel, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has offered an update on Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of Adama Traore. The Italian journalist claims that the club’s managerial director Fabio Paratici and coach Antonio Conte both rate the 25-year-old Spanish international highly despite failing to sign him in the summer.

Romano went on to suggest that Traore is among the players Tottenham are targeting in January. Although he sounded sceptical on whether Wolverhampton Wanderers will allow the attacker to leave Molineux this month, it is apparent that Spurs are set to snap at every opportunity they get.

The club’s pursuit of Adama Traore stems from Conte’s desire to add more competition in the right wing-back department. Although the Tottenham boss already has three potential options at his disposal, Matt Doherty has struggled to perform at Spurs, whereas Japhet Tanganga is widely considered as a centre-back.

It leaves Emerson Royal as the only option at right wing-back, thus accentuating the need for someone like Traore. The Wolves attacker is regarded as one of the most interesting players in Europe due to the unique combination of sheer speed and strength he brings to the table. It makes him an excellent fit in English football, which is why the Spaniard is already targetted by a host of clubs across Europe.

Tottenham Hotspur have been pondering a move for Adama for a long time as well. They were one of the clubs in contention to sign him in the summer, but the Spanish international ended up remaining at Molineux.

The 25-year-old has since notched up 17 Premier League appearances. Although he has not been involved in a single goal or assist this season, his contributions have been critical in helping Wolves recover under the leadership of new coach Bruno Lage.

But reports from late November had stated that the winger’s stint at Molineux might soon be over, with Wolves reportedly prepared to cash in on Adama for a fee of just £20 million. However, it won’t be surprising to see the West Midlands outfit demand a lot more, knowing that virtually every other top club in Europe is keen on getting their hands on the player.

Tottenham are no exception, although it remains to be seen whether they can beat the likes of Liverpool, Juventus and Barcelona in the race to sign the 25-year-old Spanish international this January.
