"We're fine-tuning the talks" - Chelsea to conclude "ambitious operation" before the end of the week


Chelsea and Lyon will conclude the transfer of Bertrand Traore before the end of the week, president Jean-Michel Aulas has revealed.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a very positive campaign at Ajax last season but is not part of Antonio Conte's plan for next season.

Schalke 04 and West Ham United are also interested in the youngster but Aulas is determined to conclude the transfer within the next ten days.

"We're fine-tuning the talks," he said.

"It's a very ambitious operation, one that fits with what we had said.

"I hope to be able to conclude the deal in the next 10 days, if possible before the end of the week."
