The 24-year-old could be on his way out of Lyon this summer, with Newcastle, Real Betis and Bayer Leverkusen also showing interest.
Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace have now inquired about Traoré, a €10m signing from Chelsea in 2017.
Traoré made 23 appearances in Ligue 1 this season, but nine of them came as a substitute.
And despite words of support from OL coach Rudi Garcia, the Burkina Faso striker doesn’t seem central to his plans.
Hodgson has been keen on Traoré since January and the Eagles have now made some enquiries
Lyon and Palace have not yet held any official talks concerning Traoré, but the Londoners are said to be ‘very interested’.
However, recent contacts between the clubs could help Palace in any talks for Traoré.
