Chelsea’s Burkina Faso attacker Bertrand Traore is a transfer target for German Bundesliga side Red Bull Leipzig.
The Stallions player has been impressive while on loan at Dutch giants Ajax, helping them reach the Europa League final against Manchester United next week.
Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuttl is a known admirer of Traore and is also interested in his Ajax teammates Kasper Dolberg and Matthijs de Ligt.
“Let’s see how the players feel after turning us down last year,” said Hasenhuttl. “So far, we’ve not had the chance to sit down and consider everything.”
Leipzig will finish second on the Bundesliga table after a strong season and will play in the UEFA Champions League next season, making them an attractive prospect for potential signings.
Traore is also said to have piqued the interest of French Ligue 1 giants Olympique Marseille.
