Tottenham Hotspur set to rejuvenate their transfer pursuit for Wolves star Adama Traore
After joining FC Barcelona on loan in the last winter transfer window, Traore started his second spell with the Catalan team emphatically. However, the 26-year-old was relegated to the bench by manager Xavi after a short spell. He only started 4 matches in La Liga, which is disappointing for a player of his stature.
After the unsuccessful spell, Barcelona don’t want to make his move permanent and would be ending ties with him in the coming summer window. However, it is believed that the 26-year-old has no intention to return to Wolves and could be on the transfer market to find a new destination.
Wolves also want to get rid of Traore in order to avoid losing him for free in the summer of 2023 when his contract ends. The Premier League team would be eyeing to offload him for a reasonable price in the summer window.
This situation could be good for Tottenham who still remain interested in signing the Spaniard even after failing to lure him away in the January transfer window. Spurs are not alone, as Newcastle United and Leeds United are closely following the situation with great interest.
Should Tottenham sign Traore?
The lack of depth in the Tottenham squad has pushed Antonio Conte to make some uncharacteristic decisions regarding the right-back spot. After trying out Emerson Royal, he brought Matt Doherty into the squad. But the Irishman hasn’t really impressed a lot.
Considering the poor depth in the right-back spot, the Italian manager would be wise to sign a reinforcement in the mould of Traore. Even though the Spaniard isn’t a natural full-back, the manager could turn him into one just like he did with Victor Moses at Chelsea.
Moreover, the former Middlesbrough star has played in that position at times for Wolverhampton Wanderers. Of course, being a natural winger, his defensive side of things may not be the best. But then again, at least he would offer immense incision down that flank.
His top-notch physicality can provide him with an advantage over opponent defenders and those who have seen him play know all about his pace. He can genuinely take the ball at his feet and just run at defenders- pushing his whole team forward as a result.

However, our team would have to beat other competitors in the race if they really want the 26-year-old. Moreover, there is every chance that Conte can use him as an attacker as well- a versatility that would always come in handy. And amongst Leeds, Newcastle and Spurs, only we can offer him UEFA Champions League football next season.
