Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Adama Traore has emerged as a January target for Barcelona, but any deal is linked to Ousmane Dembele's situation at the club, sources have confirmed to ESPN.
Dembele, 24, is in the final six months of his contract with Barca and has still not signed an extension, with the club last week telling the France international to find a new club before the end of the month as the relationship soured.
However, as first revealed by Diario Sport, sources have told ESPN that Dembele's agent, Moussa Sissoko, met with Barca coach Xavi Hernandez and sporting advisor Jordi Cruyff on Wednesday.
In the meeting, Sissoko insisted that the player's intention, if possible, is still to renew at Camp Nou, where there is a five-year contract offer on the table. Barca hope for a decision either way before the end of the month.
Any business Barca can do in the final week of the transfer window is largely dependent on Dembele. They do not have enough room within their LaLiga-imposed salary cap to register new signings.
