Two years after leaving Barcelona, Adama Traore could be about to move back to the elite. After spells with Aston Villa and Middlesbrough, the winger could be a surprise arrival at Chelsea this summer.

Throughout the summer it's been reported in England that Antonio Conte is interested in Traore. And it's been reported that his current side Middlesbrough are ready to sell three players to bring in money: Adama, Gaston Ramirez and Marten de Roon. 

Boro were relegated last season so getting back to the Premier League would be a big move for the 21-year-old, who could still have a promising career ahead of him. 

He wasn't wanted by Luis Enrique and was forced to seek football elsewhere, but has had bad luck in England, where he has now suffered two relegations with different clubs. 

Adama made his debut for Barca as a 17-year-old and scored his first goal at 18 in a Copa win over Huesca before leaving for Villa.
