The future of Harry Kane is undoubtedly going to dominate headlines as we enter into the last week of the transfer window.
It’s still unclear whether the England captain will be playing his football in North London or Manchester next season. However, Spurs are already looking at potential recruitments in case they end up selling their star player to Manchester City.
According to a report from Daily Mail, Spurs are prepared to make a move for Wolves forward Adama Traore if they lose Kane this summer. Spurs boss Nuno Espirito Santo managed the tricky winger for three seasons at Wolves, and he is believed to be interested in working with him again.
The 25-year-old has two years left in his contract with Wolves. As per the report, the Midlands club value him at around £45million. Wolves signed Traore from Middlesbrough, in 2018, for a fee in the region of £18 million.
He has shown a lot of promise during his time with Wolves, but his goalscoring output has been dismal. Traore has managed only seven goals in 104 league appearances for Wolves.
The North London side are also exploring the possibility of signing Houssem Aouar from Lyon. Mirror claims that Spurs are now favourites to sign the French midfielder following Arsenal’s signing of Martin Odegaard from Real Madrid.
The 23-year-old has attracted a lot of interest from top clubs, particularly Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham. The Gunners even made an unsuccessful bid to sign him last summer. However, it appears that Arsenal’s interest in the player has cooled down, in the wake of Odegaard’s signing.
According to another report from French outlet RMC, Lyon sporting director Juninho has put Houssem Aouar, Thiago Mendes, Rayan Cherki and Islam Slimani on the transfer list. However, the French club are yet to receive a bid for him.
This development has left the door open for the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool. One crucial fact is that Tottenham have recently worked with the Ligue 1 club over the transfer of Tanguy Ndombele.
The North London side travel to Wolves on Sunday. It will be an exciting encounter as Nuno Espirito face his former side for the first time after leaving the job.
