Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Adama Traoré is ‘increasingly aware’ he will not be staying at Barcelona beyond this summer.

That’s according AS, who say the chances of Traoré staying at the Nou Camp are ‘running out at an alarming rate’.

The Wolves man returned to Spain on loan in the January transfer window and made an immediate impact, impressing in his early performances.

That, though, has tailed off, and he finds himself increasingly out of the picture under manager Xavi.

Barcelona have an option to turn the load deal into a permanent one for €24m, but AS have learned that they will not enforce that clause and will ‘open the door’ for him to return to Wolves.

At the moment, a swap deal with Francisco Trincao, who is currently on loan at Molineux, ‘does not seem to be on the cards’ either. Thus Traoré’s future appears to be further away from the Nou Camp.

His situation is affected by stuff around him, such as Ousmane Dembele’s potential contract renewal, Raphinha’s potential arrival from Leeds and the returns of Tricao and Alex Collado.

All of those ‘practically close the doors’ to Traoré turning his loan deal from Wolves into a permanent one.

There is also the fact that his contract with Wolves is set to expire next season, meaning Barcelona consider it ‘totally unnecessary’ to pay €24m for a player they could get on a free a year later.
