Tottenham are close to completing their first January transfer

Tottenham have all but agreed to a deal with Wolves for the potential signing of Adama Traore; Spurs said to be confident they will land the tricky and speedy winger soon.

Since the start of the summer, Spurs have been linked with a move for one of Wolves most threatening players, Adama Traore. This was just after the club announced the acquisition of now previous manager, Nuno Santo.

The Top Flight’s report from five months ago on Tottenham’s interest:

Tottenham, although off to a flying start, are still considering doing some work in the final days of the transfer window being open. The new link is Santo’s previous prodigy from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Adama Traore.

It is believed that the Spurs are looking to add another attacker or two before the window closes and besides absurd links of footballing great, Cristiano Ronaldo, there have been strong links of Traore who appears the more realistic target. (Via: thetopflight.com)

Nothing has changed to date, with current boss Antonio Conte a big admirer of the player — the club has also identified the attacking area as thin — and would like to add competition and cover for those on the flanks.

Last week, it was being reported that the North London side will submit their first bid soon and it appears things have rolled along smoothly. As per Fabrizio Romano, Spurs and Traore have already agreed to personal terms with the clubs ready to settle on the price of the player over the next few days or so.

Adama Traoré deal not done/fully agreed yet but Tottenham are confident to reach the agreement soon. Negotiations with Wolves will continue in the next hours and days. #THFC Personal terms already discussed with Adama. Spurs are on it.

Tottenham on the hunt for a top-four finish

This is a clear indication of Spurs ambitions, especially under a prolific manager such as Conte. With more firepower and player suited to Conte’s style of play, they could beat their London rivals and Manchester United to a top-four finish.

It hasn’t been the best of showings for the Spaniard this campaign; Adama Traore has only managed 19 appearances this season, 10 of them being starts and has only collected one assist from his time on the pitch.

Hopefully, the Serie A and Premier League-winning manager can bring out the best in him and his end product improves as it was while playing under Santo before the Portuguese left.

Tottenham travels to Stamford Bridge for a top-four clash against Chelsea. It will be Conte’s first trip back to the Bridge.
