Martinez wants Traore back at Everton

Friday 11 July 2014

Everton manager Roberto Martinez is keen to bring Lacina Traoré back to Goodison Park but has yet agree any deal, according to the club’s official website.


Lacina Traore


Traoré was brought to Everton from AS Monaco in a loan deal in January of this year. He made an immediate impact, scoring on his Toffees debut in a 3-1 FA Cup victory over Swansea City, raising hopes of a successful second half of the season.


However, he sustained a hamstring injury during the pre-match warm-up before Everton’s next game, a Premier League encounter with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The injury was serious enough to rule him out for three months, and his only other match action was a last minute substitute appearance in Everton’s final game of the season, a 2-0 win away at Hull City.


But Martinez has obviously seen enough to convince him to try again with the Ivorian striker, but has yet to reach an agreement with his current club. “At the moment we are still talking with Monaco,” said Martinez. “But we always wanted Lacina to be with us and to play his football with us, and that hasn’t changed at all.”


Traoré, aged 23, stands at 6ft8in and is an imposing presence on the field. He has four goals in eight caps so far for the Ivory Coast, and also has Champions League experience from his time in Romania with CFR Cluj.
