Tottenham can land Adama Traore for £20m but face competition from West Ham for Wolves winger

TOTTENHAM face competition in their attempts to sign Adama Traore from cash-strapped Wolves in January.

The Spain international is reportedly available for a cut-price £20million as Wolves look to raise funds to make their own buys this month.

That has piqued Spurs’ interest after they saw two bids rejected last summer – including one of £30m.

But the Telegraph reports Antonio Conte’s side will face competition from the likes of West Ham to land the speedy winger’s signature.

Wolves have been in talks with Traore over a new contract that would make him their highest-paid star on a whopping £120,000 a week.

But negotiations have reportedly been held up by wrangling over a release clause.

Boss Bruno Lage is desperate to bring in a centre-back, winger and striker in January but needs to sell to free up the cash.

Traore has been identified as a potential sale due to the deep-pocketed clubs interested in him.

Spurs have maintained their interest despite the departure of ex-Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo from the dugout back in November.

West Ham manager David Moyes is also understood to be keen on the 25-year-old and Molineux would likely welcome any bidding war for his services.

Traore started life in Barcelona’s storied La Masia academy before graduating to the Catalan giants’ first-team in 2013.

Spells in England with Aston Villa and Middlesbrough then followed before he was snapped up by newly-promoted Wolves in 2018.
