Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts believes that a deal to sign Adama Traore this summer could lead to the sale of Steven Bergwijn.
The club has been linked with a potential move to bring Traore into the club from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Spurs are reported to have tabled a loan bid initially with an option to buy him for £40m at the end of the season, but there is said to be a confidence that Spurs will be able to bring him to north London and reunite him with former manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
Should Tottenham sign Traore?
Traore operates primarily as a right-winger but is capable of playing on the left, as he did against Spurs at the weekend, as Wolves lost 1-0 at Molineux.
Bergwijn also operates on the flanks and has started both of Spurs’ games this season, as both Manchester City and Nuno’s former club have been dispatched.
However, he has been linked with a potential move to Ajax before the deadline and Roberts thinks that it would make sense for Traore to potentially replace the Netherlands international in Spurs’ squad.
Speaking exclusively to The Transfer Tavern, he said: “Bergwijn, Ajax are after him and if they got the right fee for him, I think he would go and Traore would come in there, but we’ll wait and see.”
