Chelsea duo Kurt Zouma and Bertrand Traore could both be set to leave Stamford Bridge this summer in search of first team football.
Burkina Faso international Traore is very much in the same boat as Tammy Abraham in that neither is likely to be chanced as the Blues’ number one striker next season, with Romelu Lukaku likely to come in from Everton.
The 21-year-old striker was on loan at Ajax last season and scored 13 goals for the Dutch outfit in an impressive campaign that ended with him starting in the Europa League final.
French TV show Telefoot claim Ligue 1 side Lyon want to make a permanent move for Traore, and are prepared to pay around €20m to prize him away from Chelsea.
Lyon are also interested in taking Zouma as well, but know that they’d struggle to sign him permanently and will instead try for a loan deal.
Zouma spent a large part of the 2016/17 season recovering from a knee injury, and would likely face competition for places from the returning Andreas Chistensen next season.
Zouma is also a target for Nice according to Telefoot, who again, would probably only succeed with a loan deal.
The Blues see Zouma as a long term prospect, but his lengthy injury would have had a detrimental effect in his fitness, and even when he returned to action, he could not displace Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz or Gary Cahill from the starting eleven.
