Adama Traore and Ruben Neves are expected to remain at Wolves beyond Tuesday’s transfer deadline, according to The Athletic’s Tim Spiers.
It was reported last week that Tottenham Hotspur, now managed by former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, had made an unsuccessful loan offer for the Spanish winger, while the Portugal midfielder has been linked with Manchester United and Arsenal over the course of the summer.
Spiers tweeted that ‘as things stand’, he’s ‘not anticipating’ late exits for either Traore or Neves. He does accept that ‘a huge bid’ could alter the situation but there’s ‘nothing active at the moment’.
The focus appears to be on incomings, with Renato Sanches ‘plus maybe one more’ targeted on deadline day.
If Wolves were to sell either of these players, it would have been wisest to do so in the early part of the transfer window. They wouldn’t necessarily want to be scrambling around for replacements at this late stage.
You do wonder whether cashing in on Traore would be smart given his rather paltry return of 10 goals in 135 appearances, but maybe Spurs’ loan proposal is the only concrete offer Wolves have received.
In other news, many Wolves fans were buzzing over this transfer update.
