Adama Traoré was a reported target for Barcelona and Manchester City last summer, but a move didn’t materialise as they deemed Wolverhampton Wanderers’ £70m asking price too high.
The Daily Mail reported on Friday that Wolves are ready to cut ties with the winger and to do that, they will have to accept a lower fee in the next market.
Pep Guardiola’s side and the Catalan club are once again named as potential suitors for the 25-year-old.
The Spain international has struggled this season and is yet to score in the Premier League in 26 matches.
Claims of Barcelona interest in Nuno Espírito Santo’s man reached Spain and Mundo Deportivo have provided the La Liga side’s stance on the player.
According to Mundo, it seems ‘very difficult’ for the Blaugrana to sign the wideman because the club’s financial situation prevents them from making ‘large investments’.
In addition to this, the position in which Traoré operates is already covered by the likes of Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembélé and Francisco Trincão.
This factor, coupled with Barcelona’s economic conditions, makes the Wolves attacker’s signing ‘practically impossible’ for them.
