The Athletic have now shared a Tottenham Hotspur transfer update involving long-time target Adama Traore.
The Lowdown: Conte re-joins race…
After club chief Fabio Paratici and manager Antonio Conte’s recruitment meeting in Italy on Friday, The Daily Mail broke news that January target Traore, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Barca from Wolves, has re-entered Spurs’ sights.
The Spaniard could now be at the centre of Tottenham’s interest again with The Athletic sharing what they know on the situation.
The Latest: Athletic make Traore claim…
According to the reliable outlet, Spurs are indeed ‘considering going in’ for Traore this summer as they weigh a third attempt to sign him.
This comes after Conte personally viewed the winger as a makeshift right-wing-back option earlier this year.
The Verdict: Third time lucky?
While his temporary spell at the Nou Camp was hardly a success going by his lack of game time, we believe he could still do a job at Spurs if Paratici decides to push forward with a bid.
An obvious attacking threat when at his very best, the 26-year-old has been called the ‘perfect fit’ for Conte and a potential ‘game-changer’ pundit Noel Whelan.
It isn’t unreasonable to believe Traore could hit major heights again under Tottenham’s elite manager, considering he was once valued at a staggering £100 million.
