Adama Traore spent nine years at the Barcelona youth team before he was promoted to the senior team. In 2015, he moved to England and joined Aston Villa where he spent one season before joining Middlesbrough. He spent two seasons at Middlesbrough and then joined Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2018. Ever since he signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers, he has scored eight league goals in 123 appearances and has been one of their most reliable players. Reputed to be one of the fastest players in Europe, he is also known for his exceptional strength.
Wolves Winger Adama Traore Could Be on His Way Back to Barcelona
Will Adama Traore Return Home Where It All Started?
Traore, who was previously linked with Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur, is one of Barcelona’s top targets, as the club looks to strengthen their squad by signing the 26-year old on a loan deal, with an option to make the deal permanent. Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez has struggled to make an impact ever since taking over from Ronald Koeman in November 2021 and he doesn’t want to take chances. Out-of-favour winger Ousmane Dembele is likely to leave the club at any moment and the 42-year old Spanish tactician believes Traore will be an important addition to the squad in their battle for a place in the La Liga top four, as they currently sit fifth on the table with 35 points from 21 games.
In recent memory, a number of players have returned to their former clubs, most notably Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United, Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea and Gianluigi Buffon to Parma. Traore could be added to the list if he finally makes the journey to Spain where he began his senior professional career.
Traore has been criticized for his output for Wolverhampton Wanderers in terms of goals and assists, as they have not been too encouraging for a forward. Perhaps he will double or triple those numbers if he returns to the Camp Nou, who knows?
