Tottenham Hotspur get Adama Traore boost as Barcelona set to snub permanent transfer

According to Spanish publication Marca (h/t The Express), Tottenham Hotspur have received a potential boost as Barcelona are set to snub a permanent transfer for Adama Traore. His form has dwindled in the past few weeks, which has cast doubts on his future at Camp Nou.

Barca had completed a loan deal for Traore from Wolverhampton Wanderers for the rest of this season back in January. They have an option to make his move permanent for a fee of around £25million, but the price has been deemed “very high”. Instead, they will focus on renewing Ousmane Dembele’s contract, giving the initiative to Tottenham in the process.

Spurs were heavily interested in signing Traore in the winter transfer window, but they lost out on his services to the Blaugrana side. However, it is likely that the English side will rekindle their pursuit since Antonio Conte was keen to convert the Spanish attacker to a right wing-back.

Spurs still need Traore?

Those who kept tabs on Traore in Spain would know that his struggles are because of the lack of an end product, which has been one of his drawbacks for quite a while. If that is the case, then serious questions can be asked about whether we should target the 26-year-old at all in the future.

While we could use a right wing-back due to Emerson Royal’s poor form, Traore may not be the solution if he lacks the final product that is required from the wide areas. Hence, it can be argued that we should not pursue the Wolves loanee even if we could be handed a free run at his signature following the La Liga club’s latest stance.

However, if Conte believes he can make use of Traore and utilise him to his best in a converted position, then we must back him and give him what he wants. After all, the boss has done the same in the past as well with Ivan Perisic and Victor Moses at Inter Milan and Chelsea, respectively.

As such, the Italian coach can do the same this time around at N17 with Traore, but for that to happen, the club must first bring in the winger. Traore, who had a number of ups and downs at Wolves during his stay in England, could add the pace and incision we need down the right flank.

Let’s wait and see how this situation will turn out to be in the coming months ahead of the next term. And to even begin dreaming about seeing Traore at N17, Spurs would have to first formalise any interest they may have in the Spaniard- if there is any still left, to begin with.
