Leeds United and Spurs to track Adama Traore in January as transfer news drops

Leeds United could be set to keep an eye on Wolves attacker Adama Traore in the remainder of the January transfer window, according to Dean Jones.

The former Bleacher Report and Eurosport journalist has reported that the Spaniard is likely to stay at Molineux at this moment, but that could change across the next two weeks.

Spurs are also said to be one of those who will be watching, with potential incomings possibly impacting his place in Julien Lopetegui’s squad.

Speaking to GIVE ME SPORT, Jones shared that although an exit is unlikely at this stage, anything could yet still happen in the final two weeks of the window.

“In terms of Adama Traore, it’s looking to me that he’ll probably see out the rest of the season at Wolves and take things from there,” he said. “But I think both Leeds and Tottenham will keep an eye on his situation just in case Wolves do make signings this month that impacts him.

“The feeling at the moment is that he’ll stay but again, that can change.”

Driving Force.

Victor Orta is known to be a huge fan of Traore, especially since their days working together at Middlesbrough where they likely formed a close bond.

If the electric attacker was to become available, the director of football at Elland Road would no doubt be the driving force between any potential deal.

Given that Max Wober and the club-record signing Georginio Rutter have already been confirmed as new arrivals this month, it is likely only a loan move that is possible right now.

Barcelona did get the green light to take Traore temporarily last season, so it isn’t beyond the realms of possibility that could happen in the next fortnight.

Jesse Marsch has plenty of attacking options right now though, and his midfield and defence are likely to be other areas that he potentially looks at strengthening now.

It’s time to move on from this never-ending link.
