Hope this is aswell as Rashica and its not one or the other.

Ditto IF it happens

I suspect a Rashica wonít happen now.

Was he played as a wing back last season?

Huge reservations about this. A former colleague of mine who I'm regularly in touch with is a big Lyon fan and has said Traore is very much a "maverick" player who shows flashes of brilliance between weeks of being shockingly bad and described him as being the worst decision makers he's ever seen. Lyon fans seem staggered they could get so much for him.

Seems very much like a "Rashica deal not happening... Shit let's get an available winger" to me.

Could be an insurance buy, looks like the Rashica deal could take another few weeks according to a few sources.

 So if Rashica and traore both come to fruition does that mean either or that Benrahma is no go, and another no9 type striker wonít be bought ?

As Traore can play down the middle of we get both that would be it you would think. I really hope there is a plan b to Rashica that's not Traore though.

Think Benrahma has been dead for a week or so to be honest. Itís just gone too quiet.
Not convinced by Traore. Like people have said, flashes of good stuff but too inconsistent. Weíve got some inconsistent wingers already and their problem is that the ball doesnt stick often enough with them which puts us under pressure.

What's Dean Smith's track record like for developing players? No prospect of him making this guy better I take it?

Well I can think of a few players who've done alright under him.

I assume coming from France he will have to quarantine for 14 days?
