The winger has missed most of the campaign with a series of injuries.
The former Barcelona youngster was one of a number of signings to arrive in the summer during a busy transfer window for then manager Tim Sherwood.
There was much anticipation around Traore's arrival, with many believing he could prove to be a smart capture by the club.
Instead, he has managed just nine appearances in the Premier League during an injury-hit campaign.
He is back fighting for a first-team place now, however, and has promised his absolute best should caretaker manager Eric Black give him his chance.
"Over the past few months overall, I have been working really hard," he told avfc.co.uk.
"I haven't relaxed at all in my time off injured. I have been putting in the hours and now I feel good.
"It's up to the coach now to decide when I'm ready but when I am selected I will give the absolute best I can to make a difference."
With Traore keen to impress, now could be the ideal time for him to do just that.
With relegation now looking a certainty by the end of the season, the pressure and expectation is off the side in their remaining games.
That means Traore has a good opportunity to come in and make his mark, hopefully offering Aston Villa’s suffering fan base some hope ahead of next campaign.
