Bertrand Traore spent this season on loan with Ajax from Chelsea
Bertrand Traore joined the Chelsea academy from French club Auxerre in 2013 but his progression into the first team has been slow.
The 21-year-old made the step up to the senior squad in 2014 but has been restricted to just 10 Premier League appearances since.
This season he has been on loan with Dutch side Ajax, earning valuable experience with the Europa League finalists.
And his performances are said to have attracted interest from Ligue 1 side Lyon who are lining up a summer bid.

French newspaper L'Equipe claim representatives from Lyon will soon meet with Traore in London to work on a deal.
The report says the Blues are asking for around £17million for the Burkina Faso international.
However, his wage demands are thought to be a potential stumbling block before Lyon are able to complete a deal for the winger.
Last week Traore admitted he would soon be holding talks with Chelsea about his future.
And while he is keen to stay at Stamford Bridge, the former Ajax loanee did not rule out a permanent move elsewhere.

“I will go with the national team [Burkina Faso] and after that take some rest,” Traore said.
“Then I will go back to Chelsea and have a talk – we will see. That’s my hope [to be at Chelsea next season].
“That was the key when I came to Ajax – play as many [games] as I could, do well, and try to go back to Chelsea.
“I think I had a great season but I don’t decide to stay at Chelsea or move. I will see what my future will be.”
