Premier League sides lead chase for Ivorian international.
Premier League sides Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are set to revisit their interest in signing Anzhi Makhachkala striker Lacina Traore during the January transfer window, according to Sports Direct News.
French giants Monaco are also said to be interested in taking him away from the Russian Premier League outfit and have already discussed possible terms with the player’s current club.
However, the French moneybags can expect to face opposition for his signature from the Premier League outfits as they both look to add reinforcements to their squads in the new year.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has held a long standing interest in the giant striker and is hoping to bring him on board in an attempt to support star man Luis suarez in the wake of Daniel Sturridge’s long term absence through injury.
Meanwhile, Spurs are hoping to bring a new on board after a disappointing campaign has seen them put the ball in the net just 22 times in their 19 games so far this season. The club spent £26m on Valencia striker Roberto Soldado over the summer, but he has yet to find his feet in the English top flight.
The Ivorian stiker has scored 13 goals in 29 games for Anzhi but looks set for the chop from the club as they look to recoup some of the money they spent on players over recent seasons.
