Liverpool open talks with Lyon striker Traore with Everton also keen

Olympique Lyon face losing Bertrand Traore this summer - with a return to England mooted.

The former Chelsea striker, tied to OL until 2022, has had a frustrating season and is seeking assurances from Lyon about his playing chances next season.

Foot Mercato says Liverpool are in contact with Traore's minders about bringing him back to the Premier League, but they're not alone.

Leicester City, Arsenal and, especially, Everton have also expressed interest.

Everton chief Marcel Brands is a fan, having tried to sign Traore for PSV Eindhoven when he was starring on-loan with Ajax.
