Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore has a signed a five-year deal with ligue 1 side, Lyon, completing a €10 million move.

The striker spent last season on loan at Ajax and helped them to the Europa League final, but has now been offloaded after falling way below the pecking order.

Traore scored 13 goals in 35 appearances for the eredivisie club and will now take that to Lyon.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas and head coach Bruno Gensio announced Traore’s arrival at the club, with the manager praising his ability to play in multiple areas of the pitch.


“He has a great versatility for us, he is able to play on one side or in the middle, can take up spaces and bring something to the game that is different from what we are used to doing,” Genesio said.

“He was one of the players we wanted to see at Olympique Lyonnais.”
