Aston Villa forward Bertrand Traoré to join Istanbul Basaksehir

Unai Emery Aston Villa Premier League

The English club Aston Villa Bertrand Traoré will join Basaksehir on loan. The English side from Aston, Birmingham, founded in 1874, is one of the oldest and most successful clubs in England. However, this season hasn’t brought much joy to Villa fans all around the world. The club has lost twice and won only once in their opening three matches of this season. Not a good start for the Aston Villa manager Steven Gerrard. Earlier this summer, Aston Villa also had some busy transfer sessions. And now the Villans had signed another deal, just before the end of the summer transfer window. Aston Villa striker Bertrand Traoré will be moving to the Turkish club İstanbul Başakşehir on loan.

The Turkish club based in the Basaksehir district of Istanbul was founded in 1990. They won their first top-flight title in the 2019-2020 season. Basaksehir would surely want to rewrite the story of the 2019-2020 season by regaining the Turkish title for the second time in the club’s history. Moreover, Basaksehir manager, Emre Belozoglu is looking for new potential outside Turkey. And his search has brought him all the way to the English side of Aston Villa. Basaksehir is keen to sign the Burkinabé striker Bertrand Traoré.

The 26-year-old Burkinabé international, who plays as a forward for Süper Lig club İstanbul Basaksehir. On 22 August 2022 Traoré was sent on loan from Premier League club Aston Villa all the way to Turkey. On 1 January 2014, Traoré began his senior career by joining Chelsea. But, on 2 January 2014, Traoré was sent on loan to Eredivisie side Vitesse, where he had 42 appearances and scored 16 goals. On 22 June 2015, Traoré made a comeback to Chelsea for the 2015-2016 season. On 12 August 2016, Traoré was again sent on loan to Ajax. Then, Lyon brought the Burkinabé striker to Ligue 1. And then finally On 19 September 2020, Traoré signed for Premier League side Aston Villa.

Nonetheless, now the Turkish side is eager to sign him in. The Super Lig side Başakşehir is looking to play Traoré as a number 9, a role that was working for him during his time at Ajax in the 2016-2017 season. This deal appears to be progressing and can be efficient for the Burkinabé international forward Bertrand Traoré.
