  • Espirito Santo once made a move to recruit Traore
  • The Wolves view the winger as a better player than Diogo Jota 

Tottenham boss Nuno Espirito Santo seems not to be ruling out a move for one of his star forwards at Molineux.

The past season was another failure for Tottenham, and the club is seemingly making the most out of summer to bolster.

Harry Kane has yet to secure his future with the Spurs, but the club has reportedly shortlisted a host of forwards as potential targets.

Speaking on The Football Terrace's YouTube channel, reputable transfer insider Dean Jones weighed in on newly-appointed Tottenham manager Espirito Santo’s possible stance on the matter.

According to Jones, Espirito Santo has always been impressed by Adama Traore’s work rate at Wolves that he wanted to winger to join him at Crystal Palace.

Now that Espirito Santo is with Tottenham, Jones teased that there’s a good chance the Portuguese coach will do the same.

"When Nuno [Espirito Santo] was going to go to Crystal Palace, he wanted them to do a deal for Adama Traore as part of him coming in," Jones revealed. "[Crystal] Palace were open to it but only if he signed his papers first and he didn't, so that whole thing broke down.”

"It wouldn't surprise me if Adama's on the radar [of Tottenham]," he added.

Aside from Tottenham, Chelsea is another English Premier League reportedly keeping an eye on Traore’s situation.

At the peak of Chelsea’s link-up with Achraf Hakimi, who is now joining Paris Saint-Germain, a report said the Blues are also considering Traore as another option.

With Hakimi now out of the equation, Chelsea is believed to be still interested in Traore, who is also on the radar of his boyhood club Barcelona and another Premier League side Leeds United.

Chelsea is said to be keen on adding a new right-sided player, and Thomas Tuchel has put Traore's name on his team’s transfer wish list.

Traore co-starred with former Wolves striker Diogo Jota during the latter’s time at Molineux.

However, Wolves correspondent Tim Spiers earlier revealed that the club sees Traore as a potentially better player than Jota.

“In terms of personnel, the way it’s been explained to me was that they felt [Diogo] Jota had probably hit a ceiling in terms of what he could achieve at the club and that £45 million ($62 million) was a very good price to reinvest back into younger players who could be their next Jota,” Spiers wrote earlier this year.
