The Daily Mail says Chelsea have agreed to sell Traore to Lyon for £16.6million.
The 21-year-old scored 14 goals during an impressive loan season at Ajax and the Dutch were among a host of clubs keen to take him on a permanent deal.
However, Lyon have matched Chelsea‘s asking price and hope to conclude terms this week.
Traore is expected in France in the coming days to consider personal terms.
