Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur to battle West Ham United for Wolverhampton Wanderers star Adama Traore
Wolves could be tempted by offers around the region of £20 million as they look to meet the demands of their manager. David Moyes is keen on getting the services of Traore, meaning West Ham could derail Tottenham’s efforts.
Spurs had previously tried to sign the 25-year-old last summer, but they saw their two bids rejected by Bruno Lage’s side. Antonio Conte’s team have continued to maintain their interest and could try their luck to get him in the future.
The Spaniard and his representatives have been in ongoing negotiations over a renewal with the Wanderers, but both parties have not reached a common ground so far. The release clause was the point of contention for the player’s side, so it remains to be seen how the situation develops moving forward.
Traore to Spurs?
Reinforcements in the forward line are a must if we are to challenge our objectives in the second half of the season. The Premier League winger would be a fine addition in that case, plus his versatility to play as a wing-back would suit the system that Conte has employed currently.
The Hammers are contenders for the top four, and we cannot take their interest lightly in this case. They would be keen to boost their chances of getting into the Champions League, so Fabio Paratici must be ready to take them on to get our target.
Ideally, we would want to get our hands on the Wolves forward this month to boost our chances of of challenging for the top four. We cannot go the rest of the season with just Steven Bergwijn and Bryan Gil as our attacking options.

At the same time, there are some concerning issues like the end product of the Spanish international. But if the Italian boss believes the attacker is what he needs in the team, then we should back him and fulfil his demands. Time will tell whether we would pull this off or not and if this would happen this month.
