Adama Traore looks likely to depart Molineux this month with Wolves and Tottenham edging closer to agreeing a deal.
The 25-year-old's contract expires in 18 months and it’s believed he has no intention of signing fresh terms.
Wolves rejected a bid of £15 million from Spurs earlier this week. However, it’s thought their asking price is around £20 million and with the two clubs not far apart there’s an expectation among senior figures at Wolves that an agreement will be reached.
Spurs’ priority this window is adding some attacking quality on the right flank to offer more in the final third than Emerson Royal currently does.
They are possibly eyeing up Traore as a right wing-back, in a similar way to how boss Antonio Conte taught Victor Moses, previously a winger, to play in that position for Chelsea when the Blues win the title in 2016-17.
Traore has been on the bench for Wolves’ past three league games.
