Tottenham are making a grave error by signing Wolves flop Adama Traore

Posted by

Although Tottenham are steadily improving under Antonio Conte, there is an obvious need for reinforcements this month if the North Londoners are to sustain their top four challenge.

The Italian has hinted in recent press conferences that, perhaps, the club’s ambition doesn’t match his own, and that can be seen in their pursuit of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ flying winger, Adama Traore.

The former Barcelona youngster consistently flatters to deceive and, on the face of it, doesn’t seem to be a Conte purchase at all, even at £15m according to The Athletic. Is the instruction therefore coming from above?

Aside from having pace to burn, which Spurs can frankly utilise with other players already in the squad, Traore doesn’t have an awful lot going for him.

What is the point in hiring a player that in his entire career in England, stretching back some six and a half years, has only provided 17 assists and scored 33 goals in all competitions, per transfermarkt?

With 243 games played in all that time, it works out to a, frankly terrible, one assist her 17 games and one goal per seven games.

That isn’t the sort of output that Spurs need at this point, and they would be far better served placing their money elsewhere.

It would be a grave error to continue down the path that they are currently on, particularly when it can be seen what a positive effect Conte is having on the squad.

Should they decide that Traore is in fact their man, then the North Londoners will have no one else to blame once it’s obvious their purchase was a waste of money.

  1. It’s another Levy pointless buy, just for the sake of buying on the cheap. Go and sign top quality like Vlahovic. No we’re always linked to players like that but Levy never signs them. Vlahovic, Rudiger, De Ligt, Martinez and Dembele, just a few off the top of my head that Levy wants and never gets, he’s lied to the fans for 20 years, time for he and Lewis to go.

  2. Adam is quick and strong. Teams know how to stop him that is why he is the most fouled player on the pitch. I think he will spend most of his time out injured. He has no “final end” to his play. His shooting and passing is very poor history. Should have sold him earlier for a lot more money.

  3. Get Wardprouse so you can finally take a decent corner,free kick or shot on target outside the box. Please just buy him.
