Lacina Traore: Monaco striker set to have Everton medical

The 6ft 8ins striker looked set to join West Ham last week, and even had a work permit granted, but Sam Allardyce missed out on Ivory Coast international who now looks to be on his way to Merseyside.

Everton look to have hijacked the deal for Traore and Allardyce admitted earlier this weekend there is nothing they can do to stop the Goodison Park outfit signing the player.

When asked after Saturday's defeat to Newcastle if Traore would be signing for the Upton Park club, he said: "It's unlikely by the sounds of it.

"We're finding it extremely difficult (to bring players in).

"We had a terrible day yesterday (Friday) when I thought a player was signing for us and then I found out he wasn't, but there you go.

"[Any other club] can apply for a work permit like we did.

"They would have to do a separate application."

Gab1965, but you don't do that two weeks after you buy a player! How much can his value have increased in two weeks?

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
