West Ham want to sign Chelsea striker

Everton are keen on Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore and are expected to make an offer in the coming days.

The 21-year-old, who can operate on either wing or as a central striker, spent last season on loan at Dutch giants Ajax where he finished second in the Eredivisie as well as reaching the Europa League final.

They are also willing to pay £17m to sign him permanently, although it's not clear whether this would be enough to persuade Chelsea to sell.

The Burkina Faso star - who made his worldwide debut aged just 15 - has not played for Chelsea since May 2016 and he might be moved on before he can add to his ten Premier League Blues appearances.

According to The Mirror, in fact, Chelsea could also use their starlet as part of the deal to sign Romelu Lukaku who has emerged as Chelsea's summer transfer priority. West Ham do need a winger and for a much lesser price Traore should be considered a must buy due to his age and ability.

"That was the key when I came to Ajax - play as much as I could, do well, and try to go back to Chelsea".

It was a fine loan spell and The Mirror claim that he caught the eye of West Ham boss Slaven Bilic, who is readying a £17 million bid for the youngster.
