Tottenham Hotspur are currently 'preparing' to raid Nuno Espirito Santo's former club Wolves for Adama Traore, with Spurs being very interested in potentially signing him.


Spurs have had a relatively busy transfer window, with the constant daunting prospect of losing Harry Kane, with him being Manchester City's main target, and could be set to leave in a deal that would smash the British transfer record that Jack Grealish's move to City broke a few days ago.


Tottenham showed that they are capable of playing well without Kane after beating City on Sunday, and it was even more impressive since none of their summer arrivals started the game, with Bryan Gil, Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero all being on the bench.


According to Spanish outlet AS (via Football Espana), Wolves winger Adama Traore has emerged as one of Tottenham's major targets for this summer, with Espirito Santo wanting a reunion with the Spaniard.


Traore is valued at around £40 million, and he has earned plenty of rave reviews over the last few years for some impressive displays across recent seasons.


The 25-year-old has explosive pace and possesses incredible dribbling ability, and he could fit in perfectly with the likes of Lucas Moura, Steven Bergwijn and Son Heung-min, who are all great on the counter.


Wolves are reportedly open to selling Traore, as long as a suitable offer is submitted, and if Spurs do provide them with a desirable offer, then Wolves will try to finalise a deal for Valencia winger Goncalo Guedes.


They are hopeful that the club's strong links with agent Jorge Mendes will allow the deal to be facilitated, with the 24-year-old Portugal international being one of the clients of Mendes' Gestifute agency.


If Guedes is sold, then Valencia will turn their attention to acting on their interest in Getafe's Mauro Arambarri.


Spurs are also considering making a move for Fiorentina's Nikola Milenkovic, but after signing Romero, it remains to be seen whether they will seek to finalise the deal this summer.


Traore played in 41 games in all competitions last season, scoring three goals and providing three assists, and while there are concerns over his lacklustre end product, he is very threatening on the ball and could be the perfect player for Nuno's system at Spurs.
