Report: Conte wants player Nuno tried to get to Tottenham in summer, £18m needed
The Telegraph claims that Antonio Conte is also a fan of Wolves powerhouse Adama Traore, and could follow Nuno Espirito Santo in trying to sign him for Tottenham. Traore’s price tag has dropped considerably of late.
Traore, 25, was a key ingredient of Nuno’s Wolves side. Having swapped Wolves for Tottenham in the summer, the Portuguese gaffer tried to lure the Spain international to North London. But a loan offer was not tempting.
Indeed, the Telegraph state that Spurs only tried to get him on loan. Having failed to sign him, The Telegraph reports that Conte could go one better. The ex-Chelsea gaffer is said to be a fan of Traore’s, and is keen on a move.
Indeed, The Telegraph’s Matt Law writes that Conte would prefer Daniel Levy to table an offer that ‘makes Wolves think’ regarding Traore. ESPN say that his price tag has dropped to a bargain £18million fee.
Conte eyes Traore: Wolves star a Tottenham bargain at just £18m
Traore suits Conte’s Spurs. While many will argue that there is a lack of goals and assists from Traore, it is his ability to drive his side up the pitch and contribute on the counter attack. Lucas Moura has been superb of late.
But if Traore is available for a bargain £18million fee, then they really need to convince Wolves into selling him next month. Traore is easily worth that figure, if not, quite considerably more. Anything under £30million is fair.
