The same goes for Milan, given that the Africa Cup of Nations which will deprive them of Ismael Bennacer and Samuel Chukwueze, and with Tommaso Pobega’s four-month injury too.
Traorè left Serie A in the winter transfer window of 2023. Initially he had signed with the English club on an initial loan deal from Sassuolo but last summer he was permanently bought by Bournemouth.
