Tottenham and West Ham are both weighing up moves for Adama Traore, according to The Telegraph.
The Lowdown: Summer links
This isn’t the first time that Spurs have been linked with a move for the Wolves winger. Back in the summer when Nuno Espirito Santo was the man in charge at Tottenham, Daniel Levy had two offers rejected for the Spain international.
How many signings does Conte need to make in January?
Traore, who shares the same agency as Spurs right-back Matt Doherty, has made 19 appearances this season prior to Wolves’ trip to Manchester United this evening but is yet to register a goal or an assist. However, it appears as if Antonio Conte is very keen for Spurs to go back in for the ‘electric’ winger once again.
The Latest: £20m Traore claim
The Telegraph’s John Percy provided an update regarding Traore’s future on Sunday lunchtime.
He claimed that Spurs and West Ham are both keen on signing Traore, and the London duo believe that an offer in the region of £20m could be enough to persuade Wolves to do business.
The Verdict: Smart move?
Traore has just 18 months remaining on his Wolves contract, and it seems as if Spurs feel they could take advantage by signing the winger for a fee which would be £5.2m less than his Transfermarkt valuation. Conte also has just Lucas Moura and youngster Jack Clarke as right wingers, so a swoop for Traore would help to balance his options on either flank.
If Conte can bring the best out of Traore when it comes to improving his output of goals and assists, a £20m move could prove to be a bargain, especially when you consider that Wolves wanted £70m for him just 18 months ago.
