Football journalist Fabrizio Romano has been speaking on Chris Cowlin’s YouTube channel and provided an update on Tottenham Hotspur’s interest in Adama Traore.
The Lilywhites were heavily linked with the Spanish winger over the summer when Nuno Espirito Santo was at the helm of the north London club.

However, Romano has claimed the interest remains high in the 25-year-old at Spurs, with Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici both big fans of the Wolverhampton Wanderers ace.
However, reports suggest the Italian is hopeful of finding a new right wing-back next month, and on the topic of Traore, Romano had the following to say about a potential January swoop:
“Super-appreciated by Fabio Paratici, super-appreciated. Super-appreciated by Antonio Conte. So it’s a name I would monitor. I don’t know if in January he’ll be able to leave Wolves, but I’m sure that his name [is on] the list of Tottenham.”
TIF Thoughts on Traore to Spurs…
However, the big concerns over the 25-year-old’s end product are a huge issue which has been evident to see this season, with zero goals or assists across his 1,063 minutes on the pitch (via Transfermarkt)
Traore’s most prolific season in the Premier League coughed up four goals and nine assists and we are not convinced by his lack of consistency that he could prove to be a worthwhile addition to the Spurs squad.
