Adama Traore’s time at Barcelona may soon be coming to an end, but his future beyond that is far from clear.
The 26-year-old winger returned to Camp Nou this past January, nearly eight years after having left the club, as Barça sought reinforcements to get their campaign back on track.
Traore made an immediate impact upon arrival, along with fellow January signings Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. However, the improved form of Ousmane Dembele meant that the Spanish winger did not start as many games in the final few months of the campaign.
Barcelona had a €30 million buy option inserted in their loan agreement with Wolves for Adama Traore. While initially it was believed that the club would trigger that clause and keep the winger around beyond the 2021/22 season, plans have changed.
The Catalans’ poor financial health and other transfer priorities have meant that they have decided not to go ahead with the permanent signing of Traore. The winger is now all set to return to Wolves, where he does not seem to have a future either, with his contract expiring in 2023.
And, according to Express (h/t SPORT), Tottenham Hotspur are showing an interest in signing the 26-year-old Traore once he returns from his loan spell at Barcelona.
The north London club had attempted to land the Spanish international during the January window as well. However, they were snubbed by the player who opted to return to his boyhood club and help them out in their time of need.
But, it seems like Tottenham have maintained their interest in the Wolves ace and are planning to make another attempt to land him this summer.
However, as per the report, they are likely to face competition from fellow Premier League clubs Leeds United and Newcastle United, who are also keeping close tabs on the situation of the on-loan Barcelona ace.
With Traore’s spell at Camp Nou drawing to a close, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Spanish international.
