Olympique Lyonnais target Chelsea loanee Traoré

Europa League semi-final opponents Olympique Lyonnais hope to put pen to paper with Chelsea loanee Bertrand Traoré, as a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette.

Lacazette has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League side Arsenal, as well as Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid. Arsene Wenger views the striker as a potential replacement for Alexis Sanchez, should the Chilean depart from Emirates at the end of the season.

Traoré signed a new three-year deal with Chelsea in August, to be then loaned out to Ajax for the 2016/2017 campaign. He has played 35 games for Ajax this season, scoring 11 times and dishing out 5 assists.
