Tottenham place Adama Traore on list of January transfer targets with both Conte and Paratici big fans of Wolves star

TOTTENHAM have reportedly identified Wolves ace Adama Traore as a possible option in the January transfer window.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte is looking to bolster his side this month as he looks to assemble a squad capable of finishing in the top four.

The North London outfit were keen to secure Traore's services in the summer, but refused to meet Wolves' £40million demands.

And the club are claimed to have maintained their interest in the Spain international ahead of a potential swoop.

Speaking on Chris Cowlin’s YouTube channel, transfer guru Fabrizio Romano declared that Conte and managing director Fabio Paratici are huge admirers of the 25-year-old.

Commenting on Traore, he said: "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."

Should Traore make the move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, he could feature as the right wing-back in Conte's 3-4-2-1 formation.

Conte currently has Emerson Royal, Matt Doherty and Japhet Tanganga to choose from for the right side of his defence.

Traore has featured in 19 games in all competitions for Wolves this season, though he has failed to chip in with a goal or an assist.

With his contract at Molineux set to expire in 2023, it has been claimed that the Midlands outfit have slashed his asking price to £20m.

Liverpool have also been credited with an interest in Traore, with Reds legend John Barnes urging his former employers to bring him to Anfield.

He told BonusCodeBets.co.uk: "Adama Traore could be a good addition to the squad but he’s not going to play ahead of [Mohamed] Salah, [Sadio] Mane, [Diogo] Jota or [Roberto] Firmino.

"If he wants to come to Liverpool that would be great but he’ll come knowing he’s not going to play regularly.

"It would be a great acquisition for the squad. But I can’t see him making that decision."
