Tottenham Hotspur: Adama Traore deal should progress this week

Tottenham Hotspur: Adama Traore deal should progress this week -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to transfer insider Dean Jones (via Give Me Sport), Tottenham’s pursuit of winger Adama Traore is set to intensify in the coming days, and the club are ‘quite hopeful’ that Fabio Paratici will get it done.

The Lowdown: Wolves could cash-in on Traore

Traore arrived at the Molineux in the summer of 2018, in an £18 million deal from Championship side Middlesbrough. Wolves have previously offered a contract extension to keep the Spain international at the club beyond June 2023, but the two parties failed to come to an agreement.

As a result, Wolves boss Bruno Lage has admitted that Traore could be sold if it is in the club’s best interests. With only 18 months left on his current deal, Wolves don’t have much longer to do that if they want to make any decent profit.

The Latest: Traore deal to progress this week

Jones believes that Traore’s days in a Wolves shirt are numbered, as Paratici and co are set to step up their pursuit of the player within a matter of days.

Speaking to Give Me Sport, he claimed: “I think it’s going to be the one that progresses this week, for sure. Spurs are quite hopeful that they’ll get him.”

The Times have previously revealed that Tottenham are in talks to sign the 25-year-old in a deal worth £20 million, further reporting that it could be in Antonio Conte’s plans to convert the attacker into a right-wing-back, like he did with Victor Moses at Chelsea.

The Verdict: Form could be a worry

Traore’s form in the Premier League could worry Spurs fans, as he has failed to register a single goal or assist in 18 appearances this season. However, if Conte chooses to utilise him as a wing-back rather than as an attacker, it could make that lack of end product less problematic.

The Spaniard has previously demonstrated his lightning-fast qualities in the Premier League, having been described by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as ‘unplayable’. Arsenal legend Martin Keown also previously exclaimed that Traore has gone from ‘looking like a learner driver in a Ferrari, to Lewis Hamilton’.

With such high praise from the footballing elite, this could prove to be a shrewd signing for Conte’s side.
