Barcelona are set to decline the option to buy on-loan winger Adam Traore from Wolves at the end of the season. 

The La Liga side would have to pay just over £25 million to keep hold of Traore beyond the end of the season, but it appears that they have not yet been suitably impressed, according to Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist has claimed that the Spanish side have no interest in paying to keep Traore, but that they would consider a swap deal involving a Barcelona player moving to England.

Traore set up a goal in each of his first two games in Spain, but has since failed to register a single goal or assist and has fallen out of favour under Xavi Hernandez.

The Spanish international joined the Catalan giants in January having failed to impress during the first half of the Premier League season.

Traore is unlikely to remain in Barcelona beyond the summer

Traore, 26, scored his only league goal of the season in January against Southampton, and later departed for Spain.

While the chances of the player remaining in Barcelona are slim, Romano does state that there may be the possibility of Traore returning to Wolves and then being either sold or sent out on loan again.

The winger began his career at the Nou Camp before moving to England in 2016, initially with Aston Villa and then with Middlesbrough.

He has, however, scored just 17 goals in 237 appearances in English football.
