Manager reveals his £18m superstar could leave, after claims Tottenham want to sign him

Manager reveals his £18m superstar could leave, after claims Tottenham want to sign him

New Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui acknowledged that Tottenham  target Adama Traore may not sign a new contract.

Lopetegui recently took over at Molineux and will use the World Cup break to familiarize himself with his new squad as he attempts to steer them away from relegation danger.

According to the Express and Star, he has discussed Traore’s contract situation and expressed his desire for the Spain international to sign a new contract.

Despite signing Djed Spence in the summer, 90Min reported that Spurs could re-engage with Traore as they seek to bolster their right wing-back options.

He said: “Adama is our player. I’ve known him since he was 14 at Barcelona, he is stronger now!

“I know he has not finished the contract but the most important thing is he works hard here until June.

“After that, I don’t know what is going to happen. Of course, I would be very happy if he was here.”

Traore, who is valued at $18 million, has reportedly been a transfer target of Tottenham for the past three transfer windows, even though Antonio Conte has only been manager for the past two.

Unless he signs a new contract before the end of the season, January will be their last opportunity to acquire a transfer fee for him.

This could open the door for Spurs to finally acquire their target, or they could wait until the summer to attempt a free transfer.
