The legendary warhorse Didier Drogba has once again departed Stamford Bridge for the second time after a successful season while the new recruit Loic Remy has been linked with a move away from the Premier League champions, Chelsea, thereby paving way for an opening in the first-team squad for Bertrand Traore next season.
The Burkina Faso young professional has finally been granted a work permit and his finally able to play for Chelsea next season should Jose Mourinho deem him good enough.
He had already signed for Chelsea in January 2014 though at that time he has not accumulated enough international football playing time to earn him a work permit in England, so the 19-year-old was sent on loan to the Dutch feeder club, Vitesse last season and he proved he’s ripened for first team. He spearheaded the attack and scored fantastic goals during his loan spell.
Traore could be seen in a Blues shirt on the club’s pre-season tour of the United States America while the award winning manager, Jose Mourinho’s side play friendlies against New York Red Bulls, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.
Chelsea can heave sigh of relief with the addition of the young Burkina Faso player to the strike fire power of its team, his style of play is also similar to that of Didier Drogba.
