Adama Traore’s transfer to Tottenham is ‘on the rocks,’ according to Fabio Paratici, who is attempting to save the deal.
With two prospective incomings, Tottenham is expected to be busy on deadline day.
Tottenham’s approach for Adama Traore is allegedly on hold, with Fabio Paratici still hoping to bolster Nuno Espirito Santo’s team with another winger. Spurs received a huge boost to their season ambitions last week when Harry Kane announced his intention to stay at the club.
Nuno can now focus on assembling a team around the England and Tottenham captain as the club looks to rebound from last season’s setback.
They’ve had a fantastic start to the season, winning three of their first three games to sit atop the table heading into the international break.
Nuno still wants to make some additions to his squad before the transfer market ends on Tuesday at 11 p.m.
A right-back is a primary priority for the club, and it appears that Emerson Royal is close to joining from Barcelona.
A sum of £25.7 million has apparently been negotiated, with negotiations to finalize the deal still ongoing.
However, there is a chance that another attacking player will join Nuno’s team at Tottenham.
Nuno has a close relationship with Traore from his time in charge at Wolves, and the winger has emerged as their primary target.
Negotiations with Traore’s agent, Jorge Mendes, are thought to be ongoing, but Tottenham may not be able to persuade Wolves to sell.
Traore’s proposed move to Spurs is reportedly “on the rocks,” according to Football London, with Wolves desperate to maintain their star man.
Tottenham are seeking a loan deal with the option to buy for the Spain international next summer.
Wolves, on the other hand, are adamant on keeping Traore at the club for at least another season.
The 25-year-current old’s contract at Molineux expires in two years, and he was set to sign a new agreement earlier this summer.
Tottenham’s interest, on the other hand, has put a halt to the extension talks.
Nuno was asked about Tottenham’s interest in Traore lately, but the Spurs manager declined to answer.
“You already know me, I don’t talk about any scenario or rumor,” he remarked. Especially when I mainly talk about Spurs players.”
