Traore admits: "Arsene Wenger only agreed to me going on loan provided I played regularly.
"This is exactly what I need at this stage of my career, lots of first-team experience, and I am enjoying it at Portsmouth where everybody has been very kind to me and the manager encourages me to push forward.
"But I don't know what will happen at the end of the season. I will have to talk to Arsene Wenger about that.
"Obviously I want to play every game now but Gael Clichy is a great player in my position there at the moment."
