Barcelona may not pursue signing Adama Traore on a permanent deal this summer with Tottenham allegedly continuing to hold an interest in the winger, according to Marca. 

Traore, who rejoined Barca on an initial loan from Wolves in January, has been used sparingly by head coach Xavi on his return to his boyhood club.

The 26-year-old was an unused substitute in the Blaugrana’s 2-1 win over Mallorca on Sunday and has now played just 63 minutes of football in LaLiga since February (Transfermarkt). 

Barcelona hold an option to sign Traore permanently for £25 million a the end of the season (The Guardian), but his latest lack of action has left his future with the Spanish side up in the air. 

Marca report the club may not push to complete a transfer having seen the dramatic turnaround of formerly-unsettled Ousmane Dembele, whose recent form has earned him a regular starting spot at right wing. 

And the latest development could spell good news for Tottenham, who chased Traore extensively across the last two transfer windows. 

In fact, Sport have reported that Spurs are keeping an eye on the Traore situation in case Barcelona send him back to Wolves.

Traore was tipped for a reunion with Nuno Espirito Santo last summer (90min), while current Spurs boss Antonio Conte shortlisted the Spain international as an option to fill in at wing-back (The Times).

This seems like a good time for Tottenham to go back in for Traore to complete a deal providing they are still interested come the summer. 

Spurs appear to have sorted themselves out on the wing with Dejan Kulusevski but they still have some problems at right wing-back so they may end up looking back in Traore’s direction.
