Wolves, West Ham chasing Ajax striker Lassina Traore

Ajax striker Lassina Traore is attracting Premier League interest this month.

The 19 year-old Burkina Faso prospect is on the radars of Wolves and West Ham United, reports De Telegraaf.

Given his physical presence and style of play, there's a belief amongst scouts that Traore would be ideal for Premier League football.

Traore joined Ajax two years ago from South African satellite partners Ajax Cape Town.

This season, in eleven league games he has scored seven times, including five goals in the match against VVV-Venlo, won 0-13. In the group stage of the Champions League he's played five times this year and scored once in the away match against Atalanta (2-2).

Traore has a contract with Ajax to 2022.
