Tottenham 'confident of sealing Adama Traore transfer but set to play rest of season without Harry Kane backup'01/10/2022
TOTTENHAM are reportedly ‘confident of sealing’ the transfer signing of Adama Traore this month – but look unlikely to get backup for Harry Kane.
Spurs boss Antonio Conte is desperate to overhaul his squad and is believed to have made a number of stars available.
Wolves winger Traore, 25, has been linked with a move to North London for months.
The Spain international is believed to be available for a cut-price £20million as Wolves look to raise funds to make their own buys this month.
Now The Athletic reports that ‘there’s confidence that a deal can be done’ for Traore before the end of the January transfer window.
They also state that a new right-back is the top priority for Conte as well as finding another forward to help ease the burden on Kane.
However, the publication claims that difficulties in shifting unwanted players out of Spurs means they are likely to play the rest of the season without backup for their main marksman.
We reported last week that Conte is reportedly ready to flog Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn and Tanguy Ndombele in order to fund his Tottenham overhaul.

Alli, Bergwijn and Ndombele are all on the list of players Conte is willing to offload.
And Matt Doherty, Japhet Tanganga and Giovani Lo Celso are also names being touted as well.
