FULHAM are reportedly on the verge of snapping up Adama Traore on a free transfer.

The former Barcelona, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough winger, 27, left Wolverhampton Wanderers in June after his contract expired.

Now The Athletic claim that the Spanish international is “set to link up with Marco Silva’s side” and reunited with ex-Wolves team-mate Raul Jimenez.

This update states that talks between the player’s camp and the Craven Cottage outfit are “at an advanced stage”.

Fulham have been desperate to bolster their wide areas after losing Dan James, Manor Solomon and Neeskens Kebano over the summer. 

And boss Silva admitted as he hoped to bring in some wingers when quizzed yesterday, saying: “100 per cent, no doubts.

“We are really short in numbers. The market has been difficult for us, and at this level. But we need more.

“We have two faces in, and seven left our squad. The targets are there.

“We know what we want. We want to add quality and good professionals. It’s not been easy.”

Fulham signed Traore’s former team-mate Raul Jimenez from Wolves £5.5m last month.

Calvin Bassey also headed to West London in a £19m switch from Ajax just 12 months after leaving Rangers.

Traore moved to England after failing to make the breakthrough at Barcelona when he signed for Aston Villa in 2015.

But just a year later he headed to Middlesbrough, where after initially struggling, Tony Pulis finally got the best out of him as he tore up the Championship.

The powerhouse speedster’s displays caught the eye of Wolves, who swooped for him in 2018.

He went on to make over 200 appearances for the club and also break into the Spanish national squad, where he has won eight caps to date.

Traore briefly headed back to Barcelona on loan in January 2022 but he returned to Molineux after failing to secure a permanent move to see out the final season of his contract.

He played 34 times last term, scoring two goals and producing two assists.

Meanwhile, Fulham will begin their Premier League campaign at Everton tomorrow.
