The Premier League returns in less than 25 days, with a full programme of games set to take place between December 26-28. 

The first game will see Tottenham Hotspur make the short trip to face Brentford, with Antonio Conte’s side looking to regain third place having fallen behind Newcastle United shortly before the domestic season was paused.

The Lilywhites spent big during the recent summer transfer window, signing a number of stars including Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Cristian Romero.

Now though, it appears that Conte is already planning further signings ahead of the January window.

According to 90min, Spurs are interested in Wolves winger Adama Traore.

The Spaniard is set to be out of contract next summer, although it appears that Spurs won’t be alone in their pursuit of the powerful forward.

The report claims that several other clubs – including Napoli, Atletico Madrid and Leeds United – are also keeping tabs on the player.

Traore, 26, joined Wolves in 2018 from Middlesbrough, but has endured a difficult time at Molineux.

The Spanish international has struggled with inconsistency, scoring just 13 goals in 168 matches for the club.

Traore has struggled throughout his time at Wolves

He has been linked with a move to Spurs in the past, initially when Nuno Esperito Santo was in charge and more recently since Conte’s appointment.

The Italian reportedly considered a move for the player back in January, before he eventually joined Barcelona on a six-month loan deal.

Traore emerged as a target while Spurs were looking for options at right wing-back, with the Spanish international having been deployed in the role on occasion for Wolves.

Despite Spurs’ interest, the likes of Napoli and Atletico may be at an advantage in the race to land Traore, as the player will be free to sign a pre-contract agreement with any foreign club from January onwards, as he enters the final six months of his contract.

Traore was included in Spain’s squad for Euro 2020 last year, but missed out on a place in Luis Enrique’s squad for the ongoing World Cup.
