Tottenham Hotspur face competition from Wolves for Tosin Adarabioyo

Dean Jones has claimed on GiveMeSport, that Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of defensive reinforcements may encounter a stumbling block as they face competition from Wolverhampton Wanderers for the signature of Fulham centre-back Tosin Adarabioyo.

With Ange Postecoglou taking the helm at Tottenham, it is no secret that the North London club is looking to revamp their centre-back options. The Athletic has extensively covered Spurs’ quest for defensive reinforcements, particularly emphasizing their focus on strengthening the left centre-back position.

However, Jones has now shed light on the growing interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers in Tosin Adarabioyo. It appears that Wolves are also in the market for defensive reinforcements, with manager Julen Lopetegui keen on a rebuild to bolster the squad ahead of the upcoming season.

After enduring defensive struggles last term, conceding 14 goals in their final five games, Wolves are actively seeking good-value players with Premier League experience. Adarabioyo, who has caught the eye with his performances at Fulham, emerges as an intriguing prospect for Wolves

Although they had previously considered the defender a couple of years ago, the player is currently on the lookout for a new club. While Adarabioyo harbours ambitions of joining a club of Tottenham’s stature, the interest from Wolves could potentially provide an alternative avenue for the young centre-back.

The situation is fluid, with Adarabioyo weighing his options as the transfer window approaches. Should his preferred choices fail to materialize, a move to Wolves may become a compelling alternative.

As Lopetegui seeks to solidify his defensive ranks, the pursuit of Adarabioyo could offer Wolves an opportunity to add quality and depth to their backline. For Tottenham, the competition from Wolves adds an intriguing twist to their pursuit of Adarabioyo.

As they aim to rebuild their defence under Postecoglou’s guidance, securing the services of the highly-rated Fulham centre-back would be a significant boost. Adarabioyo’s composed and commanding displays have earned him plaudits, and it is no surprise that clubs of Tottenham and Wolves’ calibre are vying for his signature.
