Bertrand Traore

Chelsea have named their price for youngster Bertrand Traore amid interest from Lyon, according to The Sun.

The Sun report that Lyon are preparing for the departure of Alexandre Lacazette, who has carried the majority of the goal-scoring burden for the Ligue 1 giants in recent seasons.

The Sun believe that Lyon will turn to Chelsea starlet Traore, who has been in fine form on loan for Ajax this campaign. The tabloid believe that Chelsea will demand £17.5million in exchange for the Burkina Faso international.

Despite Traore showing great promise last campaign under the stewardship of Guus Hiddink, and again this campaign in Amsterdam, The Sun report that Chelsea have decided to cash-in on him.

According to The Sun, Antonio Conte is determined to ready his squad for life in the Champions League, and Traore does not appear to meet the criteria. It appears as though he will be heading for the exit door this summer.
