Lyon sign Bertrand Traore from Chelsea

Lyon complete the signing of Burkina Faso international Bertrand Traore from Chelsea for a figure believed to be in the region of £8.8m.

Lyon have completed the signing of Burkina Faso international Bertrand Traore from Chelsea on a five-year contract.

Earlier this month, it was revealed that Lyon were ahead of the likes of Everton and West Ham United in the race to sign the 21-year-old, who scored 13 times in 39 appearances during a loan spell with Ajax last term.

Lyon have now confirmed the capture of the young attacker, with the French giants believed to have paid £8.8m to sign Traore from the Premier League champions.

Traore joined Chelsea from French outfit Auxerre in 2013, and the attacker scored four times in 16 appearances for the Premier League giants during the 2015-16 season.

It is understood that the deal taking Traore to Lyon includes a 15% future sell-on clause, allowing Chelsea to benefit should Lyon decide to sell the attacker in the future.
