Traore, who was on loan at Amiens from Monaco at the time, hit back at the accusations and vehemently denied ever having been called anything other than Lacina Traore.

Ivorian strikers are invariably compared to the iconic Didier Drogba, but Lacina Traore shares a frame more similar to former England striker Peter Crouch!



We all know the tale; Traore scored just four minutes into his debut for Everton in an FA Cup game against Swansea, a clever backheel set the Blues on their way to victory, and Traore was in line to start the following game against Chelsea.



It was at CFR Cluj that Traore caught the eye of former Chelsea star Dan Petrescu, who would later play a huge part in introducing Traore to the Russian Premier League, when he eventually signed for modest Russian outfit Kuban Krasnodar, at the beginning of 2010.

It was there where he was discovered by CFR Cluj president Iuliu Muresan, after spending time at the well-known ASEC Mimosas academy; established by Jean-Marc Guillou, who was a close friend of Arsene Wenger.

Roberto Martinez told the Liverpool Echo at the time: ‘Lacina is someone we really believe can bring something different to the team and he is someone we will try to see if we can get an opportunity to sit down and see what is the next chapter.’ That extension never developed, Traore returned to Monaco and would then go on to make a number of moves around Europe, with stopovers in France, Spain, Russia, Hungary and back to where it all began in Romania, where he is back in a CFR Cluj shirt.

His brother Lajo is also a professional footballer in Lithuania, where he plays for FK Riteriai, after initially being brought over to CFR Cluj by Lacina.
