Journalist shares Traore update for supporters




90min reporter Graeme Bailey has a new update for Tottenham Hotspur supporters as their club and manager Antonio Conte join the race to sign Adama Traore.

The Lowdown: Stimulates eye return?

Reports suggest a third signing attempt for the Wolves star, who spent the second half of 2021/2022 on loan at Barcelona, ​​could well be on the cards.

It comes after Spurs tried to land Traore themselves on a temporary deal before the Catalans intervened.

Conte was eyeing a move for the Spaniard in a quick fix to his right-back problem, seeing Traore as a capable makeshift option and superior to both Matt Doherty and Emerson Royal at the time (The Athletic).

The latest: Storytelling in the mix…

As now supported by 90min and transfer ‘initiated’ Bailey, the Lilywhites and by extension Conte are back in the mix to sign him this summer alongside Leeds United and Newcastle United.

Although Barca haven’t accepted the option to sign him permanently, it is believed that Traore is set to leave this summer as he enters the final year of his contract at Molineux.

The verdict: take the step?

Failing to agree on terms the first time around, at least according to 90 Minutes, we believe a swoop should be considered once again, but only if it can be concluded quickly this time around.

Tottenham spent much of January trying to tie up the 26-year-old only to see Barca hijack a move in what was a very unfortunate moment for club chiefs.

Hailed as a ‘world beater’ when at his best, Traore has the quality to bolster Spurs, with former manager Tim Sherwood once calling attention to his ‘greatness’ and ‘power’ as a player.

Calciomercato also recently claimed he ‘loves’ Tottenham, so given he’s reportedly open to joining Conte, perhaps a move could be easier this time around.
