In a major Tottenham transfer boost, Adama Traore has stated that he “wants to play under Antonio Conte.”
TOTTENHAM are expected to make a move for Wolves midfielder Adams Traore this summer.
According to reports, Adama Traore is desperate to play for Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte.
In the January transfer window, Daniel Levy wants to add to his squad.
Wolves midfielder Traore is reportedly interested in joining Tottenham and working under Conte, whom he admires.
Several top clubs have expressed interest in the Spain international, who has been linked with a move away from Molineux for some time.
Liverpool and Chelsea have recently expressed interest in him, but it appears that Tottenham are leading the race to sign him.
With Nuno Espirito Santo in charge, Spurs were desperate for a new manager in the summer of last year, but Wolves demanded £50 million, which the north London club refused to pay.
Despite the departure of the Portuguese coach who managed the former Barcelona star in the Midlands, an offer is expected in January.
Traore wants to be coached by Conte, according to 90min.
The Italian is known for getting the most out of his players, especially explosive forwards who put in a lot of effort.
At Spurs, Lucas Moura is one of the most improved players, while at Chelsea, Conte reignited Victor Moses’ career.
Conte wants to bring the 25-year-old to London and use him as a wing-back, similar to how he used to be used at Stamford Bridge.
Traore’s contract with Wolves expires in 2023, and the club has been desperate to re-sign him.
However, the ex-Middlesbrough star has so far turned down all offers to extend his contract, softening the club’s stance on a possible sale.
Wolves also know that if Bruno Lage wants to sign anyone this month, he’ll have to sell players.
“When you want to take the next step and you sell your best players, the next step never happens,” the Portuguese coach said.
“The most important thing is to keep the same players, but sometimes you can’t say no when a big transfer comes up.”
“You never know what will happen at the last minute, so you have to make the best decision for the club and the player.”
