Wolves transfer news: Barcelona have explored Trincao-Traore swap

Barcelona have reportedly explored the idea of proposing a swap in order to get Adama Traore from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

According to ARA, the Catalan giants are keen to re-sign their former player this summer.

Traore left Barca back in 2015 to come to England with Aston Villa.

He then moved to Middlesbrough, before signing for Wolves in 2018.

At Molineux, Traore has carved out a reputationas being one of the Premier League’s most dangerous players.

While his end product is still a work in progress, few can beat a man one-vs-one as easily as Traore.

Barca are keen to sign the Spaniard, and according to ARA, he’s interested in going back.

But funds are supposedly tight for the giants, and apparently they have already explored the idea of offering Franciso Trincao.

The Portuguese talent, though, is not set on a move to Wolves just at the moment.

ARA add that it will be up to Jorge Mendes to convince the player of a move.

Traore-Trincao swap not the one for Wolves

Maybe they have similar valuations, but Traore and Trincao are very different players.

If Traore is to leave the club, then Wolves could do with replacing him with someone similar stylistically.

Trincao – valued at about £26 million – is another technician, and Wolves have plenty of those such as Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence.

Wolves should be looking to keep Traore. But if he goes, then surely someone with pace and power is a must.
