Barcelona 'eye Adama Traore transfer swoop' to bring Wolves star back to club

Barcelona are considering a move to re-sign winger Adama Traore from Wolves this summer, according to reports.

Traore, who came through the La Liga club’s academy, has caught the eye with a number of standout performances for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side this season.

After impressing in both the Premier League and Europa League during the current campaign, The Daily Mail claims that Barca are just one many leading European clubs showing interest in the 24-year-old.

According to the publication, the Spanish giants are believed to have sent scouts to watch Wolves on several occasions as they prepare to bolster their attacking options during the summer.

Traore arrived at Molineux in an £18million deal from Middlesbrough in 2018 and it is claimed that it would take a massive sum for Wolves to consider selling.

The Premier League side are under no pressure to cash in on the winger, with his current deal running until 2023.

Traore, who is eligible to represent Spain and Mali on the international stage, spent over a decade with Barcelona after joining their youth setup in 2004.

After making his debut as a 17-year-old, Traore went on to make just four appearances for the first team before he was sold to Aston Villa in 2015.

Although Barcelona reportedly inserted a buy-back option for the 24-year-old when he moved to Villa, it is understood that it disappeared after he joined Boro the following year.

Despite scoring just four goals in 24 league games this season, Traore has provided seven assists and has proved to be handful for many clubs with his pace and power.

Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Jose Mourinho have all praised the Wolves winger this season after he put on impressive displays in games against Man City, Liverpool and Tottenham.

Following his side’s 2-1 win at Molineux in January, Reds boss Klopp told BBC Sport: “He is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable,”.

“What a player – it’s not only him but he’s so good.”
