Wolves reject Tottenham’s proposal and insist winger Adama Traore is not for sale

Tottenham Hotspur bid to sign Adama Traore He was hit hard with Wolverhampton Wanderers standing firm in their desire to keep the winger.

Tottenham had targeted Traore after speeding up talks this week and had hoped to organize a loan deal with the aim of moving permanently.

Wolves immediately rejected an initial loan deal offer that included a £5m loan fee, insisting they do not want to sell Spain’s international this summer.

Traore is seen as a key player under new coach Bruno Lage and an integral part of their future. Negotiations will advance on a new contract When the transfer window closes.

When asked after Winning the Carabao Cup at Nottingham Forest If he expects Traore to stay, Lagee said: “Yes, I think so, we want to create a strong side, a better side to be competitive.

“We need to compete for a long season in the Premier League and the League Cup, if the players are not fit, we need people to come for them.”

Traore has two years left on his contract and it is believed he was interested in following his former coach Nuno Espirito Santos to Tottenham, but that has not changed Wolves’ position.

It remains to be seen if Spurs will try to test that solution again before the transfer window closes, but news of Wolves’ unwillingness to negotiate will come as a blow to Nuno.

The Portuguese is a big fan of Traore and wanted the former Barcelona player to provide more speed and adaptability to his team.

Tottenham still hope to do business before the transfer window closes, having agreed a £14.6m deal for 18-year-old Matar Sarr, who is expected to be loaned to Metz for this season.

The north London club is still looking for a deal to offload midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, who has attracted some interest from Bayern Munich, and will listen to offers from right-back Serge Aurier.
