‘Get in and buy him’: Arsenal legend Martin Keown urges his former side to hijack rivals Tottenham’s move for Wolves star Adama Traore after the Spaniard’s ‘lovely finish’ in 3-1 victory

  • Adama Traore’s impressive performances for Wolves have attracted interest

  • But ex-Arsenal defender Martin Keown has urged the club to enter the race 


Arsenal legend Martin Keown has urged his former club to hijack Tottenham’s move for Wolves star Adama Traore. 

The Spaniard has played a pivotal role for the Midlands outfit, featuring in over 150 matches across all competitions since joining from Middlesbrough in 2015. 

The 25-year-old has impressed in performances for Wolves in recent seasons, attracting interest from several of Europe’s elite.

Tottenham are said to be the frontrunners for his signature as Traore is believed to be their first choice as Antonio Conte prioritises bringing in a new right wing-back. 

But former defender Keown has urged Spurs’ north London rivals to enter the race for the winger.

Following Wolves’ 3-1 victory over Southampton at the weekend, in which Traore rounded off the hard-earned win with a goal, the 55-year-old sung his praises on BBC’s Final Score.

‘I feel Traore is awesome at times, and just for once, we have the satisfaction of seeing it,’ said Keown.

‘It’s a lovely finish from him. I’d sign him if I was a manager. Arsenal – get in and buy him!’

Despite Keown’s encouragement, Mikel Arteta is more desperate for a pure striker to lead the line this January.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future at the Emirates looks uncertain, while Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah’s contracts are set to expire in summer.
