Darren Bent suggested Wolves attacker Adama Traore could end up joining Tottenham or at least a side like them.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the ex-Spurs striker admitted that the Wolves winger would be a brilliant squad player for the London club before urging them to snap him up.

Football Insider recently revealed that Tottenham’s senior stars urged Jose Mourinho to sign the 23-year-old after he gave them the runaround at Molineux on Sunday.

While Bent admitted he wasn’t convinced any Tottenham player would have called for Traore to be signed, he did admit it sounded like a plausible move for the Premier League star.

When asked about Tottenham’s senior stars urging Mourinho to sign Traore, Bent told Football Insider: “As a squad player, he’d be brilliant, get him in there.

“But for someone like Adam Traore, I think he is good at what he does, he’s unstoppable at times.

“But I think those unstoppable times are too few and far between.

“I can’t remember him having a string of 10-games-in-a-row where he is the best player on the pitch, and that’s the consistency he needs to show.

“Every time he gets on the ball, he has the ability to run past his opponents at will, but he doesn’t seem to do that.

“So for me, I think he could go to Spurs or someone like that, and Mourinho could potentially make him better.

“But I can’t see the players urging for him to be signed straight after that game.”

Traore has regularly featured for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this season with him racking up four goals, as well as registering six assists, in the 26 appearances he has made.

The Spanish-born attacker has been with Wolves since August 2018 after joining from Championship side Middlesbrough.
