Young Chelsea striker Bertrand Traore is close to securing a transfer to Lyon according to reports in France.
L’equipe claim that the Chelsea striker has flown to the southern French city to complete a €19m transfer to the Ligue 1 club.
Traore is a talented striker, scoring 13 goals in 35 appearances last season whilst out on loan at Ajax. His goals saw the club finish second behind Feyenoord as well as knocking out Lyon on the way to the Europa League final against Manchester United.
However with competition high at Chelsea, and seemingly no way into the first team squad, he has taken the decision to leave.
He has made 16 appearances for Chelsea, scoring four goals since moving from Auxerre back in 2010
