Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo is keen for a reunion with Wolves winger Adama Traore this summer.

It was under Nuno that Traore blossomed into one of the Premier League's most intimidating wide men, racking up four goals and nine assists in the 2019/20 season, although his form fell off a cliff last term.

Despite their time together at Wolves ending poorly, Nuno believes he can bring the best out of Traore again as the Daily Mail state he is keen on orchestrating a reunion with the Spanish winger.

He has asked Spurs director Fabio Paratici to consider a move for Traore, who would likely cost in the region of the £45m Liverpool paid to sign Diogo Jota last summer.

Having said that, Fabrizio Romano told Don Robbie that Traore is likely to command a fee closer to the £30m mark.

Wolves are open to offloading Traore as they embark on a squad rebuild over the coming weeks, and Chelsea, Liverpool and Leeds have all expressed an interest in landing the 25-year-old.

As of yet, Wolves have not held any formal negotiations with any clubs, although they have made it clear that offers are welcome as they are looking to raise money to fund the new era under boss Bruno Lage.

There is also a willingness to offload midfielder Ruben Neves, who 90min revealed back in April has played his way on to Manchester United's radar. Arsenal have also been monitoring Neves, but their failure to sell Granit Xhaka could put an end to that one.

For Spurs, the plan is to try to shift some of the fringe players in the squad to make move for more new signings, the first of which could be Atalanta centre-back Cristian Romero.

Lucas Moura is available for transfer, and there are also plans to part ways with Moussa Sissoko, Serge Aurier and Davinson Sanchez.
