Wolverhampton Wanderers star Adama Traoré has signed a ‘mandate’ with super-agent Jorge Mendes for him to negotiate a move to Tottenham.

That’s according to Cadena SER, who say that move would open up the door for Goncalo Guedes to move to Molineux.

Traoré has been heavily linked with a move away from Wolves for several weeks, with it believed he is keen to reunite with Nuno Espirito Santo at Tottenham.

It appeared a deal was being negotiated, but reports in Spain have recently revealed something of a chasm between the two clubs, with the transfer in danger of collapsing.

Whether that happens remains to be seen, but it seems Traoré has made his intentions clear, with Cadena SER reporting he’s signed an agreement with Mendes to ‘exclusively negotiate’ his transfer to Tottenham for him.

The deal would be worth around €40m, which would then open up the door for Wolves to sign Guedes in a deal worth around €25m plus variables.

Valencia are not particularly keen to lose the Portuguese forward but ‘need to make a big sale’ if they are to carry on building the squad for Jose Bordalas.

Indeed, Mendes has drawn up a roadmap with Peter Lim, and their hope is they can play the ‘trump card’ of Guedes and get him the move to the Premier League.

Such a move is one of the last ones that Mendes has planned this summer after finalising Cristiano Ronaldo’s switch to Manchester United.

That means he should be able to give his full focus to Traoré and Tottenham before then dealing with getting Guedes to Wolves before the deadline passes.
