Everton look set to steal away AS Monaco striker Lacina Traore from West Ham. The gigantic forward has recently signed for Monaco but will go on loan to get game time.
West Ham had been thought to be favourites to land the twenty three year old striker for the remainder of the season but Sam Allardyce confirmed today that the deal was “dead”. However, he went on to say that Everton would be aware that they could get a work permit as West Ham had no problems getting one.
Traore will replace Nikica Jelavic for the short term and will be a timely addition with the Derby coming up.
