Adama Traore will travel to Merseyside to undergo a medical ahead of a move to Liverpool, according to reports.

The 19-year-old has been one of Liverpool’s top summer targets, with Anfield officials said to have flown out to Spain to wrap up the deal.

And reports in Spain say Brendan Rodgers is on the verge of securing Traore’s services with the Barcelona star preparing to travel to Liverpool for a medical.

The Catalan giants are believed to be willing to let Traore go after it was announced Barcelona’s B side must offload 13 players before the new campaign, although the Reds are yet to agree a deal for the winger.

The promising Barcelona B prospect scored three goals and made 14 assists in 37 appearances last season.

However with Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar ahead of him in the pecking order, the winger faces a tough task to make a first-team breakthrough.

Traore joined Barcelona’s youth setup in 2004 at the age of eight and in 2013 he was promoted to the club’s ‘B’ team, before making his debut later that year.

Traore played his first La Liga game at the age of only 17, replacing Neymar in a home win over Granada and just a few days later he also played in his first Champions League match.

The winger has appeared 4 times for the Catalan giants and 63 times for the Barcelona ‘B’ team.

Capped 22 times for different Spanish youth set ups, the young man was a part of Barcelona’s youth team which won UEFA Youth Cup in 2013-14.

Manchester United wre also interested in the young man’s services and it will be a major blow to the Red Devils.
