Olympique Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has confirmed that the Ligue 1 giants have entered talks over the possible signing of Bertrand Traore from Chelsea.

The chairman, who also admitted that ‘many clubs are interested’ in the 21-yea-old, told a press conference: “We want to bring Bertrand Traore to the club. There are advanced talks there, but many clubs are interested. We absolutely want to do the deal.”

Traore, who spent last season on loan with Ajax, scored 9 goals in the Eredivisie and 4 in Europa League, including a vital brace in their semi-final first leg against Lyon.
