Barcelona have been trying to add attacking players to complement their midfielders, and Traore fits the bill. He’s a physical specimen who can stress defenders with his speed, although the winger hasn’t found goal as often as he would like with Wolves. The Premier League side are currently in 8th place.
Barcelona are fifth in La Liga, one point behind Atlético Madrid for the fourth and last Champions League qualifying place. The Spanish giants have been trying to rebuild after Lionel Messi’s departure, and Traore is a big part of their plans.
