Tottenham to miss out? Wolves’ Adama Traore closing in on new contract

Tottenham to miss out? Wolves’ Adama Traore closing in on new contract

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 managers so often do, wanted to bring some of his old guard to his new club.

The player Nuno appeared to be eyeing at Molineux was Adama Traore, whom the tactician 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:

Traore set for new Wolves deal

It was then suggested in early September that Wolves would consider selling Traore in the January transfer window, should the winger refuse to put pen to paper on a contract extension.

However, in a blow to Spurs, and any other potential suitors, it now looks as though the Spaniard will indeed be signing a new deal in the near future.

The Daily Mail report that Traore is on the verge of penning fresh terms worth nearly £100k-per-week, to make him one of Wolves’ best-paid players as they aim to secure the Tottenham target’s long-term future.

It is added that, in the summer window, Spurs were unwilling to meet Wolves’ asking price of about £50m for Traore.
