Report: Tottenham are interested in Adama Traore with Wolves set to sell
Tottenham are interested in Adama Traore, with the winger unlikely to return to Wolves next season, according to a report from Calciomercato.
It surprised many when Traore did not end the January transfer window as a Spurs player. For much of the month, it appeared inevitable that Tottenham would sign Traore.
However, it was Barcelona who ultimately secured his signature. The Catalan giants signed the 26-year-old on loan with an option to buy for £29 million. Unfortunately, his return to the Nou Camp has not exactly gone to plan.
Traore has only made three starts in La Liga. And he has not completed 90 minutes in any competition since February.
Barcelona want to sign Raphinha this summer. And with that, it appears that Xavi is not looking to sign Traore permanently.
Interestingly, Calciomercato suggests that the Spain international is not expected to be playing for Wolves next season either.
In fact, Tottenham still want Traore, according to the report.
Tottenham are interested in Adama Traore, and may hope to capitalise on tough Barcelona spell
Tottenham fans may have wondered why Spurs seemed so determined to sign Adama Traore. His record with Wolves is extremely underwhelming. And it did appear that he was not improving his end product.
His move to Barca may have pleased some. So they may be a little concerned to see fresh links emerge.
But his tricky spell with Barcelona potentially opens the door for a possible bargain. And Antonio Conte may fancy his chances of turning Traore into the player he clearly has the potential to be.
Pep Guardiola once labelled him an ‘incredible‘ player. And Spurs may feel that the risk attached to a possible move has diminished with Wolves keen to offload him and Barcelona not planning to offer him a permanent home.
