Melbourne Victory are showing considerable interest in Gold Coast United defender Adama Traore.

Recent reports suggest that Victory boss Jim Magilton is already making plans for next season and the Ivory coast-born left-back is at the top of his wishlist.

With Gold Coast's future in the game heavily clouded, the club's top players may look elsewhere next season and it is believed that Traore will depart United at season's end.

Caretaker boss Magilton, who is tipped to get the job permanently, is looking to rebuild his squad and is expected to act early by pursuing Traore who has been one of the league's most consistent performers over the past few seasons.
