Exclusive: Frank Lampard set sights on signing Barcelona 26-yr-old star

Everton are eyeing Barcelona loanee Adama Traore as a potential replacement for Richarlison, Football Insider has learned.

An Everton source has told Football Insider that Traore, 26, is being monitored as a wide attacking target.

New director of football Kevin Thelwell is a big admirer of the blisteringly quick Spain international and lured him to Wolves as a club-record signing in 2018.

Traore joined Barça on loan from Wolves in January and there is an option to make the move permanent in the summer.

Everton are keeping tabs on the situation and could make a move if the Catalan giants opt not to keep him.

The ex-Villa and Boro man enjoyed a brilliant start to life at the Nou Camp.

However, his game time has diminished in recent weeks with Ousmane Dembele, Ferran Torres and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the preferred front three.

Traore was in and out of Wolves manager Bruno Lage’s starting XI prior to his move to Barcelona.

His contract at Molineux expires at the end of June 2023.

Wolves will look to cash in on the winger this summer rather than lose him on a free 12 months later.

Everton are planning a total overhaul of their squad this summer.
