Football journalist Dean Jones has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur will have to pay over the odds to sign Adama Traore today as Wolves have now doubled their asking price.

Spurs are on the market for at least one new signing before the window shuts tonight. Antonio Conte is looking for a new right-wing-back, and Traore is an excellent option.

Traore, branded as ‘incredible’, is one of the most exciting players in the world. The Spaniard is absolutely rapid, is a fantastic dribbler and when he’s in full flow, he’s almost unstoppable.

Traore, still only 26, is not a bad player to target at all. Reports have revealed that Spurs are exploring a late move to sign the Spaniard, with Fabio Paratici said to be a huge fan of him.

If Tottenham sign him, he can play on either wing and also as a wing-back, a position that Conte is desperately trying to strengthen before the window shuts at 11:00 pm tonight.

Reports revealed earlier this summer that Wolves were prepared to let Traore leave for as little as £10 million. That would’ve been a bargain and a half for Spurs, but it looks like the Wanderers have changed their mind now.

Jones has revealed that Bruno Lage’s side are now suddenly looking for a fee in the region of £20 million for Traore, who has less than 10 months left on his contract.

The journalist told GiveMeSport: “Adama has been (looked at) too, but suddenly his value has shot back up to around £20 million.”

TBR View:

£20 million for someone who will be available for free next summer seems a bit too steep, and that may well cause a deal to collapse today.

Traore is a phenomenal player on his day, there’s no debate on that front. He can singlehandedly change games for his side, but his end product is not great at all. His return of eight goals in 163 Premier League appearances shows that.

That is one of the biggest reasons why clubs have been hesitant to make a move for the Spaniard – even when he was available for just £10 million not too long ago.

It’s unlikely that Spurs will meet Wolves’ new demands for Traore today, but if the Wanderers agree to come back to their previously reported asking price, a deal could well happen.
