Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly closing in on the capture of Adama Traore, with Wolves reportedly accepting a £22.75 million bid.

According to Football Insider, Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of sealing their first transfer of January in the form of Adama Traore. It appears their £22.75 million offer was accepted by Wolverhampton Wanderers, with the club staffers asked to prepare for a medical for the Spanish international.

Tottenham are expected to pay £20 million upfront, with the additional £2.75 million set to be paid through performance-related add-ons. The player was included in the squad for the upcoming game against Brentford, but his involvement remains a doubt as he prepares for an imminent medical in north London.

The Lilywhites have been on Adama Traore’s trail for quite some time now. The Spaniard was identified as the ideal man to bolster Tottenham’s options in the right wing-back department, with coach Antonio Conte keen on using him as an attacking wing-back down the right-hand channel.

His pace, coupled with the sheer physicality and aggression, make him a tailor-made fit for Premier League football. Conte believes the attacker can improve his numbers at Tottenham, where he can provide service for proven goalscorers such as Harry Kane and Son Heung-min.

The potential arrival of Adama Traore, though, could lead to the potential exit of Matt Doherty. Curiously, Wolves have been the only club to have shown the desire to sign the Irishman, who will be desperate for a return to the Molineux in an attempt to re-launch his career and put an end to his miserable spell at Tottenham so far.

Doherty could be an adept addition at Wolves, although with just over a week remaining before the transfer window slams shut, the West Midlands outfit have their task cut out if they are to secure the services of the right-back.

As for Tottenham, they have been linked with a late January swoop for Newcastle United target Diego Carlos, but it is unlikely that the Lilywhites are in a position to make another signing. A lot could depend on how well they manage to offload their fringe players, with the likes of Tanguy Ndombele, Dele Alli and Ryan Sessegnon all linked to a potential exit from north London.
