Tottenham have made an offer of 17 million euros for Adama Traoré. Conte has given the order to incorporate him and Paratici, the English club’s sports director, tries to close his signing as soon as possible. Wolverhampton rejected the first proposal, but Negotiation sources assure AS that the operation is close to closing.
Bruno Lage, coach of the Wolves, has been clear about the situation of his footballer. “I don’t know how much they offered and I really don’t know if they made any offers. I’m not going to talk about money because that’s not my thing. We have a great player with us, a lovely guy. Sometimes it comes down to business. I remember how much Tottenham protected to Harry Kane at the beginning of the season. We will protect our player because we believe in Adama a lot. The rest is business. It doesn’t concern me. But I will protect my players. The way they work, the value for me is very high. In the end it depends on what is best for each one, the player and the club. About him, I don’t see any difference in his behavior, his mentality, his way of working… I’m happy with him. It continues being the same player”, has affirmed Bruno Lage.
Meanwhile, ‘The Athletic’ agrees with the same information handled by AS and assures that the negotiations for the winger continue and that Tottenham and Wolverhampton are about to reach an agreement for the Spanish international. Both clubs are close to unblocking the extreme situation. According to the aforementioned media, Conte has plans for Adama. His intention is to make him play right-handed lane in the 5-3-2. Adama would be recycled to take advantage of his drive in the classic system of the Italian coach.
