Flocking to Twitter, many Tottenham Hotspur supporters have been left speechless following an update on their attempted pursuit of Wolverhampton Wanderers star Adama Traore.
The Lilywhites targeted Nuno Espirito Santo’s former favourite at Molineux during the latter stages of the summer transfer window, with some reports suggesting that a bid had been lodged.
Traore’s price tag dropped by well over half this summer, coming down to €40m (£34.1m) according to Diario AS – a far cry from the €100m (£85.3m) figure mooted by Fabrizio Romano in 2020 (Calciomercato).
However, despite this major discount on a player who completed the most dribbles per game in the Premier League last year, reporter John Percy of The Telegraph (via Tottenham Tiers) has now lifted the lid on a very lowly Spurs summer offer.
Indeed, the reliable reporter claims that Daniel Levy, Fabio Paratici and co lodged an initial bid of just £5m and a loan move for the season, with the offer including no option to buy.
Flocking to this news, which one supporter called ’embarrassing’, it’s safe to say that plenty of Lilywhites have erupted at the club over this apparent offer for the Spain winger.
Check out some of their best verdicts from Twitter below.
