Chelsea are reportedly keeping close tabs on Wolves winger Adama Traore who is out of contract at Molineux come next summer and has appeared reluctant to pen extended terms.
The Blues head coach Thomas Tuchel missed out on Raphinha to Barcelona earlier in the summer window with the Brazilian attacker snubbing interest from the Stamford Bridge camp to sign for the Catalan giants.
According to Norwegian media outlet Amta ( via The Daily Express), Spain international Traore has emerged on the transfer radar at Chelsea who are looking to add to their attacking lineup before the window closes.
Traore’s versatility could also make him a viable option in the right-wing back slot which would be of importance to Chelsea and Tuchel following the increasing uncertainty looming over the future of skipper Cesar Azpilicueta.
Catalan giants Barcelona have long been interested in moving in for the Blues defender who enters the final 12 months of his current deal at the Bridge and is himself keen on making the switch to Camp Nou.
