West Brom have been keeping a close eye on former Everton striker Lacina Traore and will make a move for the star once the transfer window reopens according to The Mirror.

The Ivory Coast international spent time on loan at Goodison Park back in 2014 but only made one Premier League appearance for the Merseyside outfit.

Traore is on the books of Ligue 1 outfit Monaco, but is spending this season on loan at CSKA Moscow and he has made an impressive start to his tenure in Russia.

The 26-year-old played a part in CSKA’s 2-2 Champions League draw with Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday night, with West Brom keeping a close eye on his performance.

Tony Pulis’ men romped home to a 4-2 Premier League win over West Ham on Saturday and the Baggies have also been bought by a new Chinese owner that could inject cash into the transfer coffers.

Traore seems suited to the Premier League and his capture would give The Hawthorns outfit an extra menacing option in the final third.
