The striker is the last big name at the club following dramatic cost cutting measures that led to the likes of Samuel Eto'o and Willian leaving.

Chelsea signed the pair and now another Anzhi star could be on the move with Traore expected to follow them out the exit door.

The 23-year-old has scored 13 in 27 league matches for the club leading to interest from elsewhere.

Liverpool are said to be keen and the Ivorian's representative Dmitry Selyuk told Izvestia: "In case of a decent proposal that satisfies all the parties Lacina can change clubs next winter.

"The demand for Traore both in Russia and in Europe is quite good."
