Monaco are reportedly close to signing Tottenham and Liverpool target Lacina Traore from Anzhi.

According to, the 6ft 8in striker, who is being monitored by a number of European clubs, may follow Willian out the door, after the majority of Anzhi's first-team squad were made available for transfer this summer.

Despite having already splashed out on bringing Radamel Falcao and James Rodriguez to the club, Monaco are said to be willing to spend even more to improve their attacking threat, and see the gigantic Traore as the ideal candidate.

Spurs and Liverpool have both been linked with the 23-year-old this transfer window, but unless they act upon their interest, he could end up at Monaco before too long.

Traore scored 13 times in 26 games for Anzhi last season and has an impressive four goals in six caps for his native Ivory Coast.
