    Everton to lose 100% strike rate striker?

    Everton to lose 100% strike rate striker?

    Everton’s January loan signing Lacina Traore looks set to possibly leave the club after injuring his hamstring which will possibly require surgery.

    The AS Monaco man arrived on Merseyside carrying a leg injury but subsequently went on to injure his other leg in the pre-match warm up before the Chelsea game.  Traore only played 1 game for the blues, scoring 4 minutes in to his debut against Swansea City in the FA Cup, but Everton manager Roberto Martinez has confirmed that Traore may leave the club if he requires surgery.

    Martinez said: “At the moment, it’s too early to have a final answer on Traore because we don’t know how long he’s going to be out.

    “I think it’s important that we’re working together with Monaco, because I think what we need to get right is that the player gets the perfect treatment.

    “When I say the perfect treatment, this is not a straightforward injury. It’s an injury that can be solved by a conservative treatment, or it can involve surgery – and I think that’s a massive, massive decision.

    “Depending what route we’re going down, it’s going to have certain consequences. It could mean that Lacina can play for us again or he can’t.

    “If it’s only going to be three or four weeks, we want him here. If it’s going to be anything longer than two or three months, clearly the loan period is over. It is going to depend how the conversations go today.”
