Journalist claims Spurs 'likely' to sign 'undefendable' Premier League star this month

Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with Adama Traore in recent months.

Spurs were reportedly in talks with Wolves last summer in hope of landing the Spain international.

While Tottenham failed to land Traore back then, they’re now trying again in the January transfer window.

It was recently reported that Spurs were confident of completing a deal for the 25-year-old.

Now, The Athletic’s The View From The Lane podcast has provided more insight into the Traore to Spurs speculation.

Charlie Eccleshare and Jack Pitt-Brooke suggest that the more is “quite likely “to happen – indeed the “likeliest” deal that Spurs could do this month.

“Antonio Conte wants to go back in for Traore this month,” Pitt-Brooke said on the podcast.

“The idea is that Paratici is keen for Conte to convert him into a wing-back.

“Traore has 18 months left on his contract and isn’t going to sign another one, so Wolves want to sell.

“Their valuation is about £20million. There is also a hope that Tottenham could make up that money with Doherty going back to Wolves. But Wolves aren’t massively keen at this point.

“I feel that is the likeliest deal to get done, although Tottenham will have to find some way to get close to meeting that valuation.

Eccleshare added: “Yeah, with Traore the sense I’m getting is that one is quite likely to happen.”

Traore is a quality player who Jurgen Klopp has previously called “undefendable“.

This season, he’s working even harder, pressing much more and thinking more about his decisions when in possession.

If Tottenham pull this move off, it’ll be exciting to see what Conte will do with him and how much his game can progress even more.
