Evening Standard reporter Jack Rosser believes Nuno Espirito Santo would get the best out of Adama Traore if Tottenham Hotspur complete a late swoop for the Wolverhampton Wanderers winger.
Nuno, who was appointed as Spurs’ head coach following a lengthy managerial search in June, is keen to be reunited with Traore having bossed the Spain international before leaving Wolves at the end of last season.
With the transfer deadline looming, reports suggest Nuno is looking to negotiate a deal which would see Traore, who according to reports in Spain last week is keen to link up again with his former boss, head to north London on loan until the end of the season with a view to making the move permanent for £40million.
Would Traore be a good signing for Spurs?
Despite links with a move away from Molineux, Traore has started all three of Wolves’ Premier League fixtures so far this season. However, he has been unable to stop his current employers falling to three consecutive defeats in the top flight.
Rosser thinks Nuno would be capable of taking Traore’s game to another level if the late move is completed.
He told The Transfer Tavern: “You’d back Nuno to get a good tune out of him even though you always worry about his end product.
“Nuno knows what he would be getting and is not going to waste money on a player he spent that much time with before. He’ll know he would add something to the group. Spurs do have quite a lot of players in those positions but there are question marks over a lot of them as well.
“Traore has just got into the Spain squad, which is good experience for him, but there is no other manager you would rather have looking after him if they get that deal over the line.”
