Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur reach verbal agreement with Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore
According to the transfer news from journalist Ekrem Konur (h/t ESPN), Tottenham Hotspur have reached a verbal agreement with Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore over a potential move. He was recently on the scoresheet in his side’s 3-1 win over Southampton in the Premier League.
Tottenham are interested in signing Traore as they require some desperate additions to their depleted forward line. They have gained some ground in facilitating a transfer for the Spanish winger by reaching a verbal agreement over personal terms.
They are boosted by the fact that talks are going smoothly, and an accord can soon be reached between them if negotiations continue this way. Traore has been a constant menace for PL defenders with his attacking runs down the wings, and his pace can offer Tottenham a new dynamic down the right flank.
Next up, Spurs-Wolves deal
The 25-year-old would be a useful addition for us, considering how he could pertain to the needs of lack of depth and quality in multiple roles. He is versatile enough to play on both wings while having the ability to play as a wing-back.
Since the January transfer window will close soon, the North London club has done well by overcoming one obstacle in their pathway. With all due respect to Wolves, a move to Spurs would arguably be an upgrade for the player- as our club boasts of a positive project with a world-class manager in Antonio Conte at the helm.
At the same time, it would perhaps be appreciated by the fans if the club looks to strengthen elsewhere apart from just going after Traore. After all, wingers and wing-backs are not the only positions where we need reinforcements in our attempt to qualify for the Champions League next season, as a new centre-back and perhaps a backup number 9 would be equally useful.
More Tottenham Hotspur
Fabio Paratici would be wise to get the Spaniard to N17 as early as possible since Antonio Conte could start incorporating him into the squad at his earliest convenience. Plus, having him could help us overcome our current selection plight, considering how we only have Bryan Gil, Harry Kane, and Lucas Moura as the senior players available for selection in the attacking areas.

Son Heung-Min and Steven Bergwijn are currently out of contention but the latter could make it in time for the clash against Leicester City tomorrow. Our right wing-back situation is also worrying, with both Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal struggling to live up to the club’s expectations since signing for the Lilywhites.
The Wolves star cannot solve all our potential problems at once but he would be a step in the right direction, given his experience in the PL, versatility, and his age. It remains to be seen if the club could facilitate a move in the coming days before the transfer window closes.
