On deadline day, Tottenham is considering Adama Traore as a replacement, which will demand a formation adjustment.
Due to Wolves’ reluctance to sell Adama Traore, Tottenham may have to look at alternative options.
According to sources, if Tottenham fails to sign Adama Traore, they have another winger in mind. Nuno Espirito Santo and Fabio Paratici both want to bring Traore to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but there isn’t much time left.
Wolves are sticking to their guns, saying they’ll sell only if the appropriate offer comes up.
Tottenham has so far appeared to refuse to satisfy those demands, with rumours claiming Wolves want £50 million.
Nuno is a big fan of Traore, having assisted him in realizing his full potential at Wolves.
The Spaniard’s contract expires in two years, and Wolves have so far been unable to reach an agreement on fresh terms.
Traore is reportedly interested in joining Tottenham Hotspur, but Wolves are currently standing in his way.
Spurs appear to be considering other possibilities with only a few hours left in the transfer window.
Tottenham are interested in Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, according to Football London.
The 20-year-old has made an impression for Rubin Kazan and is expected to have a promising future.
However, any new signings on the wings would result in a formation change following the international break, according to the article.
Son Heung-min is expected to be pushed up to the front to play alongside Harry Kane.
That would almost certainly entail a change in midfield, with Kvaratskhelia or Traore vying for a spot on the flanks alongside Bryan Gil, Lucas Moura, and Steven Bergwijn.
Son played as Tottenham’s central striker in the first two games of the season, filling in for Kane.
And, with Nuno’s side leading the Premier League, he’s scored the winner for Spurs against Manchester City and Watford.
The favored midfield trio has been Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp, and Dele Alli.
Nuno may have to drop one of the three midfielders if he chooses to play two strikers with Son and Kane.
