Bertrand Traore

Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore is on the summer wish-list of Stoke City manager Mark Hughes, according to the Mirror.

Traore has been in fine form on loan at Ajax, and recently found the back of the net two times in the Europa League semi-final. His good performances for the Dutch giants appear to be turning heads in England.

The Mirror report that Hughes is in the hunt for offensive reinforcements, with doubts growing over the futures of Jon Walters, Peter Crocuh and Mame Biram Diouf. The Mirror believe that Traore is on the list of potential replacements for the trio.

According to the Mirror, Traore is attracting plenty of interest from abroad, but is interested in returning to England to play in the Premier League. The tabloid note that the Burkina Faso international is not in Antonio Conte’s plans, and could be free to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer.
