Lyon forward Bertrand Traore has hinted at a possible return to Chelsea in the near future.
The 22-year-old has been a quality addition to the French Ligue 1 side, following his impressive displays since he joined them from Ajax in a deal worth 8.8 million pounds.
The former Chelsea academy graduate was shipped on loan on several occasions due to the presence of huge talent in the first team at Stamford Bridge but went to impress at Ajax and was part of the team that reached the final of Europa League last season.
However, despite his failings at Chelsea, Traore has opened the door for a return to Stamford Bridge in future after admitting that leaving the Blues was due to his need to get more game-time.
The Burkinabe who made just 16 appearances for Chelsea, said he enjoyed his time in London but admitted he had to leave in search of first-team opportunities which led to him making a decision with the club over his future.
Chelsea have been accused of offloading their promising talents in recent years, after allowing the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku depart the club, before going on to become world stars. Nemanja Matic also had to be brought back to the club after impressing with Portuguese club, Benfica
