Adama Traore clearly struck up some close friendships during his time at Wolves.

The winger is now spending the rest of the season on loan at Barcelona.

The club decided to allow him to head back to his boyhood club last month. Wanderers stand to bank around £29 million this summer in a permanent transfer.

Traore had looked set to join Tottenham Hotspur at one point.

But the lure of his former club was too great, and Traore opted to head home once he knew there was interest.

It has been a good start to life back at the Nou Camp.

The 26-year-old has played two games already, and has made assists in both outings.

He popped up right at the death against Espanyol on Sunday to put in a fantastic cross for Luuk de Jong to equalise.

Traore is a very popular figure back at Wolves. By many accounts, he is someone all the other players really respect.

And there is evidence of Traore being close with summer signing Yerson Mosquera.

Traore posted a picture to his Instagram Story last night of an old picture of him in training with the Colombian youngster, along with Willy Boly.

Tagging his fellow Spanish speaker, he wrote ‘Enchando de menos a mi panita’, which roughly translates to ‘Missing my little friend’.

Adama Traore clearly loved being at Wolves

There is no doubt Traore really enjoyed being at Wolves.

Maybe he didn’t play as much as he would have liked this season and is ultimately the reason he pushed to leave.

And maybe he simply felt it was time to move on after several years at Molineux.

But he clearly liked playing for the club, and many of the Wolves players have spoken very highly of him.

It looks as though he had struck up a good friendship with Mosquera in the short time the defender has been at the club.

The £4.5 million signing from Atletico Nacional (Express & Star) has featured just once for the first-team this season, suffering an injury just minutes into his debut against Spurs.
