Report: Tottenham still lurking in race to sign Adama Traore this summer

Tottenham Hotspur remain interested in signing Adama Traore this summer, with Sport reporting that Barcelona are not prepared to trigger the option to make his move permanent.

Adama returned to the Nou Camp during the January transfer window after being heavily linked with a move to Tottenham.

He left Wolves on loan. But Barcelona agreed an option to buy the Spain international for £25.1 million.

Adama has gone on to provide two assists in six La Liga games. Meanwhile, he has managed the same number of assists in the Europa League.

However, he now looks set to return to Molineux. Sport reports that Barca are not in a position to trigger the option to make Adama’s move permanent.

They have not yet given up on agreeing a deal for the 26-year-old. But other teams are now keeping an eye on developments. And one of the teams keen on signing Adama is Tottenham.

Tottenham interest in Adama Traore hardly surprising after life-changing offer

It should not be a huge surprise to see Tottenham remaining in the running to sign Adama. For much of the January transfer window, it appeared that he would be North London-bound.

In fact, reports at one stage claimed that Spurs had made a life-changing offer for the ‘unbelievable’ winger. Adama however, decided that he would reject the bid in an attempt to secure that move to Barcelona.

Tottenham did go on to sign Dejan Kulusevski in January. And he has thrived on the right of the front three. But Adama is someone who can play in either wing-back role, or further forward.

So it makes a lot of sense that Spurs are now keeping an eye on events amid doubts over Adama joining Barcelona permanently.
