Report: Wolves reject a £15-million bid from Tottenham for Adama Traoré
By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur has yet to add to their squad this January transfer window. Spurs find themselves fighting for a top-four spot, and improving the team could tilt the UEFA Champions League spot in their favor. 

As a result, they’ve been linked to Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Adama Traoré; however, their Premier League rival isn’t ready to hand him over at a discount. The Daily Mail reports Wolves have rejected a £15-million Traoré. 

Furthermore, Sky Sports Anton Toloui relaid information from The Telegraph that there’s about a £10-million difference in what Spurs are willing to pay and Wolves want. Traoré has 18 months left on his contract, and there’s no further indication as to whether the two clubs will find a middle ground for forward. 

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte wants an attacking player, and he’s a fan of the 25-year-old, who has 18 months remaining on his current contract with Wolves. 

In 22 appearances this season, Traoré has scored one goal for Wolves. Conte reportedly sees the right-winger as a wing-back in his system despite the lack of offensive production.

Liverpool in now for Traore apparently after Poundland Levys latest low ball offer attempt to pretend he is backing Conte. As the tick-tock of yet another barren transfer window mercilessly marches on the reality that nothing has changed behind the scenes with ENIC and Levy becomes ever more apparent. The same old PR spin of signing a new contract extension with an existing player is heralded as a sign of intent to back the manager. Once again Levy appears to be pulling the strings and Paratici’s in particular as all energies seem to be on offloading players first to release funds to then spend on making offers for new players which as always means we will run out of time and miss out on signing anyone probably. The missing word in all of this is “investment”. Investment is new money put into the “football team” as an indication of ambition for success on the football pitch. Selling players to buy players is not investment and is not ambition.

They also failed to invest in the stadium and sucked any cash reserves we had to put towards that waste of time, along with borrowing millions against the future THFC revenues. Enic is a cancer. Just can’t see how we cut them out as they are achieving their own real estate-driven goals whilst not having to worry about success on the pitch.

Please don’t get me wrong because usually I intensely dislike Levy’s approach to transfer windows and all this last minute malarkey but it has occurred to me that this time round it might help the team to defer incomings until after the Chelsea game? New players might impact the teams apparent new togetherness and momentum before an important match. Just a thought which will probably be scuppered with no incomings even at the last minute.

Nonsense. New signings benefit the team – especially as any sign of ambition would be a welcome shot in the arm for Conte, Kane and the rest of the staff who would be in-demand elsewhere.

I’m sure we will meet in the middle around £20m but more pertinent is can Tony really turn him into a baller.

Steptoe lowballing again. He was £40m in the summer and Levy had a breakdown. You’d think he’d snap him up at £25m? I suggest the commonsense thing to do is meet in the middle at £20m.
I don’t understand our little Emperor, he drastically overpays for duds like Emerson but can’t bring himself to close a bargain deal like Grealish. The man is afflicted.

Its quite an impressive skill managing to do this all the time.

He’s dragging it out until the last days of the window to make it seem like we’re trying.

Then, the move either falls apart (“we just couldn’t get it over the line because of Brexit-induced weather irregularities”) or succeeds, deflecting from the fact we probably need to buy three decent players as a basis for a larger overhaul in the summer, while, in truth, we only bought a baby oil salesman with 1 goal in 22 games this season.

Crazy. The frustrating thing is with Conte at the helm top 4 is real possibility if additions are made. That propels Levy into the big CL qualification money and more than compensates him for speculating. Levy seems incapable of strategic thinking. His scrooge personality always takes over in negotiations. He is one dimensional.

To be honest that would be quite the transfer if we did. For all the wrong reasons of course 😀

There was once something on the High Street valued at 50 quid you deemed it too much so you wait.

The next year the product has lost its value and the seller is willing to sell it at 20 quid.

You enter the shop and haggle the seller to sell it for 15, he insists £20 is the lowest he will go.

you then spend the next few weeks trying to haggle him, £15.5, £15.75, £16. instead of just giving him the £20 and get it over with.

And thats Levy for you. Will never change, will always screw us over and will never accept in his thick skull that he always hampers us with this BS.

it worked when we were viewed as this average mid table club, now we have all the bling (stadium etc) that’s not how we’re viewed. If a man is wearing a suit and a Rolex would you believe him when he said he had no money?
