Barca have announced that they will pay Traore’s salary and have the option to make the contract permanent

26-years-old Traore progressed through the Camp Nou academy and made four appearances for Barca’s first team before joining Aston Villa in 2015

He spent two seasons at Middlesbrough and has made 154 appearances for Wolves since arriving in 2018 for a record fee of £18 million ($24.1 million).

“Everyone knows Barcelona is a city and a club that Adam cares about, so it’s a dream move for him,” said Wolves technical director Scott Sellers.

Traore’s arrival gives Barca coach Xavi Hernandez another attacking option as Usman Dembele is in exile after failing to negotiate a new contract and teenager Ansu Fati avoiding a hamstring injury.
