Traore linked with Tottenham
Nuno Espirito Santo would take over as Tottenham boss during the summer following Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
The Portuguese had previously been at the helm of Wolves and, like a lot of managers often do, seemingly wanted to bring some of their old guard to their new club.
The player Nuno appeared to be eyeing from Wolves was Adama Traore, who the Portuguese had signed from Middlesbrough whilst Wolves boss.
The Daily Mail reported early in August that Nuno was keen to bring his former star man to North London.
However, during the final week of the window, Wolves are understood to have rejected a proposal from Spurs, insisting that Traore was not for sale:

Wolves could sell Traore in January
Whilst the 25-year-old’s end product can sometimes be lacking, his raw pace and power make him an absolute nightmare for any full-back in the Premier League.
And he would no doubt make a fine addition to Spurs’ squad as they look to fight their way back into Champions League contention.
But whilst they did miss out on him during the summer window, it appears that Wolves could still yet part with the pacey winger this term.
As per the Birmingham Mail:
Wolverhampton Wanderers will consider selling their highly-rated star Adama Traore in the January transfer window, should the winger refuse to put pen to paper on a contract extension, it has been claimed.
Said report comes on the back of suggestions that Traore has been declining the opportunity over the past 12 months to extend his deal.
