Chelsea ready to approve exit of forward to Premier League rival

TraoreChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern hoping for exciting signings this month have been left disappointed so far but there’s plenty to talk about, with our punters sat enjoying our new local brew whilst discussing some intriguing reports.

The Sun states the Blues are ready to approve the exit of forward Bertrand Traore, who’s set to join Everton on-loan until the end of the season.

Everton will have to pay the 20-year-old’s £40k-a-week wages in full, which they are prepared to do, though they are concerned about Chelsea’s attempts to use the young forward as makeweight in a deal that would see John Stones go the other way.

The Toffes will not accept that deal though and are pushing for Traore to arrive on-loan, after he impressed last season with Vitesse Arnheim as he scored 14 goals in 33 Eredivisie appearances. However, despite shining then, he’s found first-team football extremely difficult to come by at Stamford Bridge.

Everton have loaned players from Chelsea in the past, with the biggest success story being the acquisition of Romelu Lukaku- who they later signed for a club-record fee.

However, our Chelsea fans believe Traore would get more opportunities at another Premier League side as they can’t see the youngster dislodging the likes of Lukaku in the Toffees set up.

Chelsea fans, do you loan out too many players? Let us know in the comments below!
