Tottenham linked Barcelona whizkid Adama Traore makes decision

Adama Traore will not be joining Tottenham, as was previously suggested.

Tottenham head coach Mauricio Pochettino was spotted watching Barcelona's B team over international break, leading to speculation he could be preparing the club for a potential swoop.

Buying one of the club's bright prospects would be a low risk and cheap investment, although as seen with Giovanni dos Santos, it's no guarantee to success.

Portuguese website MaisFutebol reported on his visit, and speculated Adama Traore could be one of the starlets on his radar.

Traore, it has now been reported by Spanish newspaper Sport, signed a new contract on Wednesday taking him up until 2018.

In 10 games for the B side, the winger has five assists and one goal to his name this season.

Alternate names put forward as subject of Pochettino's scouting mission were Sergi Samper, Munir El Haddadi, Sandro Ramirez and Jean Marie Dongou.

Samper, Ramirez and El Haddadi have all made impacts for the first team this season, and so Dongou, a Cameroonian striker and former top scorer of the NextGen Series, may be the prospect Tottenham have the most chance of tempting away.
