Tottenham remain interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers star Adama Traore, according to The Telegraph.

Traore was heavily linked with Spurs in the summer, with The Guardian claiming the clubs held talks over a £40 million move for the 25-year-old.

A deal failed to materialise in the end, but it looks like the Londoners could go back in for Traore in January.

The Telegraph is saying Tottenham are ‘keeping tabs’ on the Spain international, who has already played against Spurs twice this season – once in the Premier League and once in the League Cup.

Perhaps surprisingly, Traore is yet to score a goal or provide assist in any competition so far this season.

His final product is often criticised but to have numbers that low is quite damning – though it should be noted Wolves have struggled for goals collectively this term.

In any case, if the report is to be believed then Traore could end up being a Tottenham player come the end of January.

If he can start being more productive, he’d certainly be a useful addition to the front line.



  1. Hell no!!! Traore is all foreplay no party and has the stats to prove it. To balance this side we need:

    A) a midfield playmaker such as Nico Barella for the 352 (and potentially be able to play with Lo Celso (like a xavi iniesta combo)
    B) some steel and accurate passing in defensive midfield like a peak wanyama (xaver schlager is injured but someone like that), this is far faaaaaaaaar more urgent than any new centreback signing, as its an entire defensive role that is various levels of missing in the options we currently have.
    C) a high IQ, creative attacking midfielder with pace and industry (nkunku?) to enable us to play 433 effectively

    I would also say that a left sided, left footed centreback like Schlotterbeck, Pau Torres or to a lesser extent Romagnoli would be beneficial, although Davies is doing a good job there for now, whilst an opportunity to sign Vlahovic would be unwise to ignore again with the kane situation as is.
