Barcelona move for Adama Traore

Barcelona have made concrete steps towards signing Adama Traore from Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to The Athletic. Nothing is agreed as of yet, but the talks between the two clubs and the players are in progress.

Traore was reportedly close to joining Tottenham Hotspur, but the move to North London is now off, with the 26-year-old not keen on playing the role of a wing-back, supposedly intended for him by Spurs boss Antonio Conte.

What Barcelona are trying to do is talk Wolves into a loan deal for the rest of the season, at the end of which they would have the option to make it permanent for €35 million.

Traore has been out the Wolves starting XI recently. He looked set to sign a new contract with the club towards the end of last season, but the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo prompted him to put the matter on hold for a while. Now, it doesn’t look likely to happen at all, and his current deal expires in less than 18 months.

Traore is a product of Barcelona’s La Masia academy, and in 2015 he left to join Aston Villa. He also played for Middlesbrough, before joining Wolves in 2018.
