Wolves winger Adama Traore has a decision to make after being called up by two different countries for the upcoming international break.

Last month Traore was included in the Spain senior ranks for the first time following a call-up, but had to withdraw due to injury.

The 24-year-old, who was born in Catalonia, Spain, now has an important decision to make.

Traore was born to Malian parents and came through the Barca youth ranks.

Should he declare for the country of his birth Traore would be included in the squad for upcoming crunch UEFA Nations League clashes against Portugal, Switzerland and Ukraine.

Traore has represented Spain at all levels since U16 but has never made a senior appearance

Born in Catalonia, Traore started in the youth ranks at Barcelona before moving to England

Mali meanwhile face Ghana on October 9, and Iran four days later, before preparing for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers which begin in November. 

Traore has represented Spain at every level from the Under 16s, though has never made a full senior appearance.

This summer the powerful forward was linked with a return to Spain, with Barca tipped to come back in for his services under new manager Ronald Koeman.

No bid materialised and Traore will spend the coming season at Molineux. He left Barca in 2015, before  a short spell at Aston Villa.

From Villa, Traore signed for Middlesbrough, before being quickly monitored by Wolves and brought to the Premier League.
