Stoke trail another Barcelona starlet

Stoke trail another Barcelona starlet

Stoke are hot on the trails of Barcelona winger Adama Traore.

The Potters are trying to fight off competition from Europe to sign the promising 18-year-old winger on a season long loan from the European heavyweights.

Stoke manager Mark Hughes, who played for the Catalan club, has already obtained the highly rated Marc Muniesa from the Spanish side last season with great rewards.

New Barca manager Luis Enrique is hoping that the Spanish born Malian can further his footballing development with a season-long loan, and after Muniesa`s gentle introduction to first team matters, Stoke could be an ideal destination for the winger.

The midfielder has only experienced 22 minutes of first team football for Barcelona, but has impressed for the sides 'b` team. He possesses both pace and strength, and would help Stoke in area where they are currently lacking after the departure of Etherington and the return to Liverpool of Oussama Assadi.
