It wouldn’t really be a transfer window if Bertrand Traoré wasn’t, at some point, linked with a move to the Premier League.
Normally, it’s the likes of Watford, but this time around, we’ve been blessed with some different names, with Bournemouth, West Ham and Leicester City all reportedly interested.
We’ll focus on the last two in this article, as we’ve already covered the Cherries’ desire to make a €35m bid for the player here.
According to Foot Mercato, West Ham have ‘already enquired with the player’s entourage’, while Leicester ‘are planning on making a loan with a view to buy offer’.
It seems that both David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers aren’t entirely happy with the attacking options at their disposal, and while they don’t seem as keen as Eddie Howe, they clearly wouldn’t mind having the Burkina Faso international in their ranks if a deal was possible.
We now have to wait and see if Bournemouth pull the trigger on that €35m, or whether Traoré prefers a loan move to Leicester City, which might be slightly more palatable, seeing as they are third in the league instead of in a relegation battle.
