The 19-year-old winger was one of the many targets manager Brendan Rodgers has been keeping an eye on in regards to reinforcing his side ahead of the new campaign.

The La Liga champions have also proposed a swap deal involving Philippe Coutinho, but it is likely that Rodgers will not let one of his star players leave.

Traore, who plays for the Barcelona B team, is on the verge of an exit following revelations that the squad must release 13 players before the new campaign begins.

He featured 37 times in the Spanish second division last term, scoring three goals while providing a further 14 assists.
