Barcelona complete loan move for Wolves winger Adama Traore
Barcelona have completed a loan move for Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Adama Traore.
The 26-year-old started his career at the Spanish outfit before moving in 2015.
However, he has now returned to Camp Nou, with Barca completing a loan move.
The Catalan giants also have the option to make the move permanent at the end of the season.
The Spanish footballer will be the third signing for the Blaugrana this transfer window.
They have already brought in veteran full-back Dani Alves while Ferran Torres completed a permanent move from Manchester City last month.
Barcelona confirmed the signing by releasing a statement on their official website:
“Barcelona and Wolverhampton Wanderers have come to an agreement for the loan of Adama Traore until June 30, 2022,” it read.
“The Blaugrana will take on the player’s registration and have an open purchase option.
“Adama Traore’s presentation as a new first-team player will take place on Wednesday, February 2, without public attendance. The club will soon reveal further details.”
Adama Traore joined the famed La Masia academy in 2004 and progressed through its ranks to earn four senior appearances for the Catalans.
He joined Aston Villa in 2015 but left the club a year later to sign for Middlesbrough.
Following his spell at Boro, Traore joined Wolves in 2018.
Since he arrived at Molineux, the Spaniard has made154 appearances across all competitions, scoring 11 goals and creating 18 assists.
Traore boasts great pace but lacks end product, as his paltry goals tally for Wolves demonstrates.
