Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are interested in signing Bertrand Traore, according to Team Talk.

The two London outfits have enjoyed excellent transfer windows so far and both have broken their transfer records - Spurs when they signed Tanguy Ndombele, and the Irons with the addition of Sebastien Haller.

But neither are finished yet and Tottenham are heavily expected to sign Giovani Lo Celso and Ryan Sessegnon before the deadline on August 8, while West Ham are, according to The Star, 'confident' of signing Moussa Marega.

But there's seemingly another name on their radars and that is Lyon attacker Traore.


Team Talk have claimed that West Ham have already asked the Ligue 1 side about bringing him to East London, while Mauricio Pochettino's side are 'considering a move' for the former Chelsea winger.

The Burkina Faso international, who left Stamford Bridge in 2017, only turns 24 in September and scored 29 goals and set up 12 in 91 appearances for the French giants.

This is a versatile player who can play on either wing, as well as up front, and if the money is right then Tottenham and the Hammers are right to look at him.
