Spurs set to make Traore approach after Wolves sanction departure

Tottenham are set to make an approach to Wolves for Adama Traore after the Midlands club sanctioned his departure, according to reports.

The Spanish winger has been linked with a move away from Molinuex for the last few transfer windows and it looks like the Wolves man could finally be set for a move.

When former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo took charge at Spurs in the summer, Traore was touted as someone who could follow the Portuguese manager to north-London.

However, Wolves reportedly wanted £50 million for the winger and deal never materialised.

Now, as reported by 90min, Traore’s new asking price has been reduced to just £22 million and Spurs could be set to make their move.

The report claims that the Spaniard has turned down a number of new contract offers from his current employers, leaving Wolves willing to sanction his departure.

It continues by naming Liverpool, Leeds and West Ham as potential suitors for Traore but Spurs currently have the edge as managing director Fabricio Paratici begins talks between the two clubs.

Spurs would like Traore to play deeper than he has typically done at Wolves, playing as a right wing-back in manager Antonio Conte’s formation.

The players representatives have told the north-London outfit that he would be willing to adapt to Conte’s wishes.

Nuno’s successor at Molinuex, Bruno Lage, admitted that a departure is possible, even if he would like to keep his best players.

“When you want to do next step, every time you sell your best players, the next step never happens. But in the transfer window, you never know if something happens in last minute, you have to decide what is best for the club and the player.”

Elsewhere, Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has admitted his side have unfinished business in the FA Cup after losing in the final last year. They take on non-league side Chesterfield on Saturday.

“There are a lot of teams with unfinished business in the FA Cup except for Leicester. If we want to go back to Wembley we have to win tomorrow. Tomorrow is the business and we have enough to work on, improve, show, and prove ourselves on the pitch,” said Tuchel.

“Don’t judge the opponent and importance of the game, go and do our thing and this is what I demand of myself and the players.”
