Traore has been selected for Euro qualifiers against Malta and Romania, in place of injured Valencia striker Rodrigo.
The 23-year-old speedster was born in Spain and has represented them at various youth levels, and is also eligible to play for Mali through his parents.
It was said elsewhere earlier this week he had pledged his allegiance to Mali, but he told the Express & Star that was not the case.
"The truth is I've spoke with Mali, but I didn't sign anything," said Traore.
"I've been in contact with them and they've shown interest. There has been a bit of confusion. I haven't decided yet."
