Barcelona B winger Adama Traore has been the subject of a transfer war between the likes of Stoke City, Liverpool, Aston Villa. The 19 year old was recently spotted at Stoke City stadium earlier as he contemplates a move to the Premier League. The Barcelona youngster met with Stoke representatives before going on tour around the stadium to view the equipments and facilities.
The 19 year old winger might be tempted to make a switch to Stoke City just like former Barcelona players such as Bojan, Marc Muniesa, Moha El Ouriachi and Ibrahim Affelay did. With the likes of Messi, Suarez , Neymar , Munir and Sandro ahead of him in pecking order and the relegation of Barcelona B to the third tier of the Spanish division, the Spanish player will be definitely want to facilitate a move away from Barcelona in search of competitive football. However it remains to be seen whether Barcelona will sell or loan out Adama Traore.
This particular turn out of events will definitely not please Liverpool who were frontrunners to sign Adama Traore. The Merseyside club were heavily linked to Adama Traore and Stoke City are on the verge of hijacking their deal to sign the youngster. With the departure of Sterling and Sturridge’s injury concerns, Liverpool’s need for a back-up winger cannot be stressed enough.
The likes of Balotelli, Origi , Ings , Benteke , Borini are all out and out strikers. Liverpool have been linked to German winger Marco Reus all summer but nothing fruitful seems to have occurred. With the failure to sign Marco Reus , Brendan Rodgers can turn to a cheaper option in form of Adama Traore. The Barcelona youngster is regarded as one of the best talents in Barcelona B team and would be a terrific signing for Liverpool. Missing out on the youngster will be a big blow to the Reds as it will leave them shorthanded in the winger department.
