Adama Traoré Diarra (born 25 January 1996), known as Adama, is a Spanish footballer who plays for FC Barcelona B as a right winger.

Club career[edit]

Born in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona, Catalonia to Malian descent,[1] Adama joined FC Barcelona's youth setup in 2004 at the age of eight, after a brief period with neighbouring CE L'Hospitalet.[2] In 2013 he was promoted to the B-team, and made his professional debut on 6 October, in a 0–1 away defeat against SD Ponferradina for the Segunda División championship.[3]

On 23 November 2013, again as a late substitute, Adama played his first La Liga game at the age of only 17, replacing Neymar in the 4–0 home win over Granada CF.[4] Three days later he made his first appearance in the UEFA Champions League, coming on for Cesc Fàbregas in the 82nd minute of a 1–2 loss at AFC Ajax for the group stage.[5]

International career[edit]

On 17 February 2014, the Mali Football Federation confirmed that Adama and his older brother had opted to switch allegiance to Mali.[6]
