'It is true': Romano claims that Tottenham's board are interested in signing 'unstoppable' player
Fabrizio Romano has claimed that even Tottenham Hotspur’s board of directors are keen on Adama Traore on the Don Robbie podcast.
Tottenham’s board keen
Tottenham have been linked with Adam for much of the summer so far.
And it seems that he is very much a player on their wishlist, as Tottenham’s board like him, as well as Nuno.
“For Tottenham for now they are trying to resolve the situation of Harry Kane,” Romano said.
“If Harry Kane is sold, he could be one of the names on the list.
“I am told that it is true that, of course, Nuno likes the player and talking about the board, also from the board there is some interest in Adama Traore.
“He is not a priority now, but he is one of the names that they have on the list.”
Big attacking weapon
If Spurs could sign Adama he really would add to their attacking threat.
Interestingly, the Spanish international played a more central role for Wolves on opening day, as he made numerous runs from the left flank inside the Leicester City defence.
It led to him taking six shots, and even though he didn’t find the back of the net, his performance was highly impressive.
Adama possesses a unique skill set which makes him a nightmare for defenders, and led to Thierry Henry calling him ‘unstoppable’ last season (Sky Sports).
Even though he may not be the most productive player in the final third, he could be a seriously exciting addition to Tottenham’s attacking ranks.
The problem for Spurs is that Wolves would surely be holding out for big money for the powerful forward.
And it remains to be seen whether Tottenham have the sort of budget which could tempt Wolves into selling one of their star players.
