Lyon striker Bertrand Traore has revealed he made the best decision leaving England as the player struggled to progress at Chelsea, the Daily Mail reports.
Despite the potential and clear talent, Traore couldn’t cement himself as a regular for the first team.
The 22-year-old got opportunities at the Blues in the troubled 2015/16 season as we finished 10th in the league. However, this opportunity was sandwiched in between loan spells at Vitesse and Ajax. But when speaking to the Daily Mail, Traore insists that he has made the best decision leaving Stamford Bridge.
“Going from Chelsea was the best decision for me. I am enjoying myself, as a young player you can only improve if you are playing every week.”
Although his exit from the champions was abrupt, the Daily Mail reports that Traore is open to a Chelsea reunion.
Sky Sports reported that Chelsea were interested in signing another striker in Fernando Llorente on transfer deadline day.
However, the failure to sign the Spaniard has left us with just Alvaro Morata and Michy Batshauyi as our natural strikers. Perhaps Antonio Conte regrets letting Bertrand Traore go, especially what the Daily Mail report to be just £9M.
