The Lowdown: Spurs in attacker hunt…
As well as new defenders, Spurs have been tipped to add to their forward line this summer as August 31 fast approaches.
Now, as per this report from Spain, it appears Levy and Nuno have their sights set on yet another attacking target.
The Latest: Spurs ‘preparing an offer’ for Traore
As per Diario AS, the Lilywhites boss personally wants to reunite with his former favourite player at Wolves and is eager to sign him for Spurs this summer.
The Molineux side have slapped a €40 million (£34.1m) price tag on his head amid Tottenham’s interest but it is believed Levy and Nuno ‘preparing an offer’ around that amount to ‘take over the player’.
AS also believe that Wolves plan to use that money for their own transfer plans as they plot a swoop for Valencia forward Goncalo Guedes.
The Verdict: Unmissable opportunity?
Nuno himself never held back in his praise for the ‘amazing’ player during his time in the Midlands (The Athletic), and given Traore’s ridiculous price drop when compared to last year, it could be an unmissable opportunity to sign him for just £34.1m.
Fabrizio Romano, writing for Calciomercato in October 2020, stated that Wolves valued him at around €100 million (£85.3m) – with that figure now allegedly dropping by more than half.
He could prove to be a real bargain and Nuno already knows exactly how to get the very best out of him.
