Tottenham Hotspur has a couple of weeks until the January transfer window, but despite the short window that the club has, they’re confident that they’ll have at least one addition to their squad this month.
“Adama is a player that they’ve admired for quite a long time, and there’ll be some competition there for Tottenham, even though Tottenham are reasonably confident that they will conclude a deal for Traore,” Jones said.
It’s in Wolves’ best interest to get a deal done for Traoré this month as they’ll get less in the summer when he only has one year left on his contract. Spur has been linked to the Spanish international dating back to this past summer, but no move occurred.
Now with 18 months left on his deal and no extension in sight at the moment, Tottenham can perhaps use that as leverage to make sure a deal gets done between the two parties this month.
Traoré could be the first building block as manager Antonio Conte rebuilds the squad.
