However, Traoré did score his first QPR goal last weekend in a 3-1 victory over Ipswich Town and could have been more active in the first team if he were willing to play a more offensive midfield role.
The ex-Arsenal man is no stranger to Italy having played for Juventus on loan during the 2010-11 season but could find Livorno a very different challenge.
Traoré the represented the country of his birth, France, at Under-19 and Under-21 level but he chose to switch to play for Senegal instead in 2011.
Sky Italia believes that Traoré will give his agreement to the transfer tomorrow and will be able to travel to Tuscany for a medical.
Livorno are in dire need of some help as they face a grim relegation dogfight. They currently sit joint bottom of the Serie A table along with Catania on just 13 points.
