Barcelona have ‘made it clear’ that they will not pay a fee for Adam Traore but are still keen on signing the Wolves winger on a permanent contract this summer.

That’s according to who claim there is a shared interest between both parties to extend the current deal despite the Catalan giants standing firm with their ‘no pay’ approach.

Traore has become a popular figure during his short time at the Camp Nou and is very much a part of the new found positive environment that Xavi is instilling around the place.

Though he isn’t guaranteed a start every single week, similar to how he was utilised at Wolves, his attitude is impressing and his pace and power is a weapon that is unlike anything else they have at their disposal.

He’s made 10 appearances in all competitions and notched up four assists - that’s four more than he had during his previous 23 this season for Wanderers.

It’s clear that it’s a place he as a player is flourishing but Wolves won’t be wanting him to go for peanuts.

The two options on the table appear to be a straight swap-deal which see’s Francisco Trincao come to Molineux on a permanent with Traore going the other way or another year’s loan in the summer for the Wolves man whose contract will then expire in 2023.

Option one is Barcelona’s preferred scenario and it’s clear to see why but Wanderers do hold the cards and shouldn’t be held to ransom over a deal they don’t feel is right for them.

Interesting one to keep an eye on as the months progress either way.
