Ex-Everton striker Lacina Traore hopes for England return

Former Everton striker Lacina Traore hopes to return to England.

The 6'8" forward joined the Blues on loan in January 2014 but injury restricted him to just two appearances.

The 27-year-old returned to parent club Monaco before being shipped out to CSKA Moscow and then Sporting Gijon on loan this season.

But now Traore is talking up a return to the Premier League, reportedly telling Sport Mania in the Ivory Coast: “I have offers from England and Spain for next season. England has everything. Technique, tactics and physical play.

“It's a more complete league. That's why I dream to return in that league."
