Lacina Traore's future at AS Monaco remains clouded.

After returning from his loan at Everton last season, Traore has not played a minute of preseason for ASM this summer.

The Ivory Coast centre-forward is recovering from injury suffered late, last season in England and ASM are yet to make a decision about registering for the new campaign.

France Football says Everton have asked to be kept up to speed on developments, but they're not alone as West Ham United and Tottenham have been in touch this month.

Traore is yet to play for Monaco, having joined in January from Anzhi before being sent immediately on-loan to Everton.
