Nuno claims 25-year-old is a 'unique' talent, amid rumours that Tottenham could bid for him
Nuno has talked up Adama Traore amid claims that Tottenham Hotspur could launch a bid for the Wolverhampton Wanderers winger in Football London.
The Telegraph reported last night that Tottenham are now considering making a £40 million bid for the powerful wide-man.
Traore certainly caught the eye against Spurs yesterday, as he caused real problems to their defence.
Although Tottenham walked away from Molineux with a 1-0 win, Traore was a constant thorn in their side.
The Spaniard was a real menace to Japhet Tanganga, particularly in the first half, as he constantly got in behind.
And Nuno admits that he is a player who is a real challenge to stop once he gets into a rhythm.
He said: “I think Wolves have a very good team and created us enormous problems, big big problems. One of those was Adama. Everyone knows Adama is unique and he’s very hard to stop.”
Could the deal happen?
The words add further intrigue to the suggestions that Spurs could launch a bid.
Tottenham have actually been a real threat on transition under Nuno, with the new Lilywhites boss clearly looking to use his side’s pace in attack to his advantage.
And with Traore in the team, they could have one of the biggest counter attacking threats in the league on their side, if their apparently impending bid is successful.
