Report: Why Aston Villa target is in Denmark today – originally posted on Sportslens.com
According to RMC Sport, Bertrand Traore has travelled to Denmark to undergo a medical for Aston Villa.
It has been reported that the former Chelsea attacker has travelled to Copenhagen where he will undergo his medical before travelling to England.
This is so because, according to the report, Villa’s sporting director Johan Lange is in his homeland of Denmark.
Would Bertrand Traore be a good signing for Aston Villa?
Traore has played in the Premier League before when he was at Chelsea, although he could not really make an impact.
The 25-year-old, who can play as a forward or as an attacking midfielder, has progressed and developed a lot during his time at Lyon and is ready to return to the top flight of English football.
The Burkina Faso international scores goals and creates chances for his teammates, and he would make Villa more threatening in attack.
According to WhoScored, Traore scored one goal and provided three assists in 23 Ligue 1 games and scored one goal in five Champions League matches for last season, while in 2018-19, the attacker scored seven goals and provided two assists in the league and scored one goal and provided one assist in eight Champions League matches.
