De Telegraaf are reporting that Ajax have been in contact with Chelsea over a loan signing with a clause to make the deal permanent. They are yet to hear an answer from the defending Premier League champions.

Traore impressed in a two-year loan spell with Vitesse Arnhem between 2013 and 2015, scoring 20 goals in 51 appearances for the club, including several against Ajax.

When asked on the speculation, Ajax director Marc Overmars cryptically replied, “I will not go into names”
