Traore tipped to 'explode' as new Tottenham role revealed - pundit

Wolves winger Adama Traore could “explode” if he joins Tottenham this month.

That’s according to former Leeds United stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the attacker’s possible transfer.

A Wolves source has told Football Insider on Wednesday (5 January) the 25-year-old may be available for just £18million after being valued at £50m in August.

As reported by The Telegraph (2 January), Tottenham are considering a move for Traore in the winter window after seeing two bids rejected last summer (2021).

According to The Athletic (6 January), Antonio Conte could deploy the winger as a right wing-back.

Kenny claims a change in position could be the making of Traore.

“Playing as a wing-back may be the best thing for Traore,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“He doesn’t have that much on an end product in my opinion. His goal and assist record isn’t as good as you would think.

“Obviously he is massive, he’s so well built so that suits a defender. He’s also lightning quick to go along with the muscle.

“I can see him at Tottenham and if Conte wants him, you have to trust him.

“He could explode onto the scene at Tottenham if he gets a bit of confidence and has quality players around him.

“I think that’s a really interesting move.”

Traore has failed to score or provide an assist in 18 Premier League games this season.

Last season he scored twice and provided two assists in 37 league outings.
