Tottenham are interested in signing Lyon forward Bertrand Traore, according to Team Talk.

Traore joined Lyon from Chelsea in the summer of 2017. He has scored 29 goals in 90 appearances across all competitions for the French club, including seven goals in 33 Ligue 1 games last season.

Lyon signed the 23-year-old on the back of an impressive loan spell with Ajax in 2016/17 in which he scored 13 goals, helping the Dutch champions reach the Europa League final.

Team Talk claims West Ham United are leading the race for Traore’s signature. The Hammers apparently want to sign him on loan with a view to a permanent deal.

However, it is believed West Ham face competition from two London rivals in the shape of Spurs and Arsenal, who are both said to be considering moves for the striker.

Traore can play through the middle or out wide, so perhaps Tottenham are looking at him as a potential alternative for Paulo Dybala. The Juventus forward is reportedly keen to remain in Turin.

Whether Traore is good enough for Spurs is up for debate. Mauricio Pochettino might fancy him as Harry Kane’s new deputy following Fernando Llorente’s exit.

  1. And who the fuck are Team Talk? Do you know where they get their information from? How do you know they’re telling the truth and not simply making up another load of bullshit designed for the simple minded sheep?

  2. Arsenal have just signed Pepe so why would they want such a bang average player? Spurs will be lucky to finish top 4 as Man Utd and now Arsenal are recruiting better than we are. Another very bad summer again
