Middlesbrough winger Adama Traore is to be drafted in to train with the Spanish national side this week, according to Sport.

Due to a number of Real Madrid stars not being able to join up with the rest of the Spain team due to the Champions League final at the weekend, Spain manager Julen Lopetegui has allowed several Spanish youngsters to train with the squad.

Marco Asensio, Dani Carvajal, Isco, Lucas Vazquez, Nacho and Sergio Ramos will all join up with the national team after they face Liverpool in Kiev.

With Lopetegui giving chances to Spanish youngsters, Middlesbrough midfielder Adama Traore has been rewarded after a brilliant season on Teesside. He scored five goals and recorded 10 assists across the campaign.

Traore will feature in drills, training and practice matches, and will be one of seven linking up with the 2010 World Cup winners this week.

Along with the Boro flanker will be Manchester City’s Pablo Maffeo, Cologne’s Jorge Mere, Pablo Fornals of Villarreal, Sociedad’s Mikel Oyarzabal, Carlos Soler from Valencia, Unai Nunez of Bilbao and Real Betis’ Fabian.

With Madrid’s six players not joining up with the squad until after Spain’s up and coming friendly against Switzerland on June 3rd, it could mean that the players asked to train could be involved against the Swiss.

Adama Traore made his Spain under 21 debut in their 5-3 European Qualifier win over Northern Ireland in March. He came off the bench to play the final 15 minutes, and also played the last minutes of their 3-1 win against Estonia.

He could even make his debut for the national side as early as next month, if all goes well.
