Burkina Faso international Traore made his Blues debut in 2015 and went on to make 16 starts in the 2015-16 season under Jose Mourinho, scoring four goals.

He scored 13 goals in 35 appearances for the Eredivisie outfit and now moves to Ligue 1, with Lyon looking likely to lose star striker Alexandre Lacazette this summer despite a move to Atletico Madrid falling through.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas and head coach Bruno Gensio announced Traore’s arrival at the club, with the manager praising his ability to play in multiple areas of the pitch.

“He has a great versatility for us, he is able to play on one side or in the middle, can take up spaces and bring something to the game that is different from what we are used to doing,” Genesio said.
