Barcelona are ready to take Adama Traore off the summer market.

Everton and Stoke City are set to miss out on an exciting loan swoop for Traoré as Barcelona prepare to fast-track the teenager into their own first team.

The Sentinel says Mark Hughes had been lining up the 18-year-old right winger for a year-long loan deal in the Premier League, and the Potters held positive preliminary talks with the Spanish giants.
