Agent reveals interest in “New Adebayor”

Sport.co.uk understands that giant CFR Cluj forward Lacina Traore is set for a summer move away from the Romanian club with Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers, PSV Eindhoven, Turkish club Galatasaray and German Bundesliga club Hamburg being linked with the player.
The 20-year-old 6ft 8 in striker was linked with a move to Arsenal in the January transfer window, however Gunner’s boss Arsene Wenger is not in the market for a striker having purchased Moroccan hit-man Marouane Chamakh on a free transfer.

Traore has been labeled the “New Adebayor” in his homeland and has been earmarked for a bright future at international level with the Ivory Coast. In an exclusive interview with Sport.co.uk the player’s agent revealed that there was interest in the player, however the player’s representative refused to comment on specific clubs being linked with the striker.

Thomas Boehm told Sport.co.uk: “There is interest but at the moment he is with CFR Cluj. We have a close relationship with the management at Cluj and we will talk to them about his future. There is nothing serious at the moment.

“There is a lot of talk with Lacina (Traore). We have had talks and spoken to different teams, but not just in the United Kingdon, but Italy, Germany and Holland. At the moment it is quiet but there could be movement in the next week. At the moment there is nothing concrete.”

Traore has yet to be capped at international level by the Ivory Coast
