Stoke lining up Traore bid

Stoke City are reportedly considering making another bid to secure the services of Barcelona winger Adama Traore, according to The Stoke Sentinel.

Traore was reportedly close to a loan move away from Camp Nou this summer in a bid to gain first team experience, with the Potters among a host of clubs interested in securing his services.

However, the Catalan giants opted to keep Traore in their own squad for the time being. The 18-year-old made his senior debut for Barca last season as a substitute in a 4-0 La Liga victory over Granada CF, and also appeared as a substitute against Ajax in a Champions League tie in Amsterdam; his only two senior appearances to date.

Traore, born in the province of Barcelona, has represented Spain up to under-19 level, however has since declared his desire to represent Mali at senior level should the opportunity arise.

It is thought that Stoke will monitor his progress and keep in contact with Barcelona in the hope of receiving another opportunity to bid for his services.

Potters manager Mark Hughes starred for Barca in the 1980s and his good relations with the club have helped Stoke complete the signings of Marc Muniesa and Bojan Krkic in recent times.
