Wolves will allow Adama Traore to join Tottenham in the January transfer window if a suitable offer arrives, according to journalist Luke Hatfield.
The Lowdown: Traore linked with Wolves exit
The Spaniard has again proven to be a hit-and-miss figure for Wanderers this season, making just 10 Premier League starts and not registering a single goal or assist.
Bruno Lage seemingly doesn’t see Traore as a regular starter and he has been linked with a move away from Molineux this month, with Spurs thought to be keen on snapping him up.
The 25-year-old’s current deal expires in the summer of 2023, so Wolves are running out of time before they risk losing him on a free transfer.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Hatfield talks up Spurs move
“It’s a situation where I do think it would work best for Wolves, if they were to get a suitable offer, to cash in on him.
“They obviously won’t undercut themselves in terms of the price that they get for him but, ultimately, if he’s not playing games and the contract situation is continuing on then it makes more sense for Wolves to sell.”
The Verdict: Time to move on?
Traore has had long enough now to prove himself at Wolves, having been at Molineux since 2018, and while there have been moments of quality – Tim Sherwood has hailed him as ‘fantastic’ in the past – now is the time to accept an offer if a lucrative one comes in.
Wanderers should be able to receive a decent sum for the Spain international, which could then help go towards signing a top-quality replacement this month.
The returning Pedro Neto will also provide Lage with another attacking option, so Traore shouldn’t be a huge miss if he does move on during the current window.
