Report - Tottenham will make a £40m move for Adama Traore following an initial loan from Wolves
Tottenham could be set to bolster their strike-force after it emerged they will make a £40m move for Wolves forward Adama Traore, according to reports. The 25-year-old would sign on loan prior to making a permanent transfer. It is believed Wolves would still prefer to keep one of their biggest talents but would consider a transfer if a sizeable offer were to be received.

Tottenham are stepping up their bid to sign Adama Traore on loan from Wolves with a view to a permanent £40m deal, according to reports.
The 25-year-old has two years left on his current deal at Molineux with the Telegraph suggesting Wolves would consider a transfer if the Spain international refuses to pen a new deal before the summer window shuts.
Traore, who has been in talks over an extension for over a year, played the full 90 minutes in the 1-0 home defeat to Tottenham on Sunday and his former manager, Nuno Espirito Santo is known to be a huge admirer of the forward.
It is believed Wolves would still prefer to keep one of their biggest attacking threats but would consider a transfer for a size-able fee should they fail to have a breakthrough in contract talks.
Tottenham’s managing director Fabio Paratici has already put in place summer deals for Cristian Romero and Pierluigi Gollini that involves a loan with an option to buy permanently at the end of the season. It seems a similar arrangement could be struck for Traore with Spurs keen on a loan prior to sealing a £40m deal through a series of smaller staggered payments, like the one that saw Diogo Jota move from Wolves to Liverpool last year.
