Spurs working on £20m+ deal for the “Hulk” of the Premier League
January is transfer time and Tottenham Hotspur want to make the first transfer move. According to the “BBC”, the English top club should submit an offer for the Premier League star Adama Traoré from Wolverhampton Wanderers in the current winter transfer window.
Tottenham are showing strong interest to sign Wolves attacker Adama Traore.
The “Hulk” (because of his incredible stature) has been playing for the club in the West Midlands since 2018. He was Tottenham’s big transfer target last summer. At that time still under the direction of Nuno Espirito Santo, with whom Traoré already worked together in “Wolves”. But the deal failed first, and on November 1, Espirito Santo was sacked as Tottenham head coach.
But the 2019 Champions League finalists also seems to be interested in Traoré under his new coach, Antonio Conte.
The Italian believes he can use Traoré in a full-back role, similar to how he worked successfully with striker Victor Moses during his time at Chelsea (2016-2018). In 2016/17 Conte won the Premier League title three games before the end of the season.
Traoré, who lives from incredible dynamism and speed, could therefore be made for the position as an offensive full-back.
In addition, he is not really finding his perfect form this season with the “Wolves”. After 20 competitive games, he is still trying to find the first goal and assist.
18 months before the end of the contract (summer 2023) there are no signs of an extension for the “Wolves”. A change in the air could already be good for the Spanish international.
According to the “BBC” there is still no official offer, but it is expected that Tottenham will make this soon. The “Spurs” could also benefit from the fact that Wolverhampton must first sell players before they can sign new ones. The trainer Bruno Lage explained that.
According to transfermarkt.com Traoré has a market value of £20 million. He joined Wolves from the youth of FC Barcelona and has been playing in England since 2015. First at Aston Villa, then at Middlesbrough and finally at Wolverhampton.
Should he now move to Tottenham?
