Club career

Traoré began his career with Planète Champion in his homeland. He came to prominence whilst playing for Burkina Faso in the 2005 African U-17 Championship, with his performances earning him a one-month trial with English Premier League side Manchester United. He impressed in his trials but was not able to sign for them due to work permit issues. Although he had the option of going on loan to a Belgian club first but also had interest from French Ligue 1 side AJ Auxerre. With the decision of his mother, he joined the French side instead.[3][4]

On 4 January 2009, he was loaned out to Stade Brest 29 for six months. He returned to AJ Auxerre on 31 June 2009.[5]

Traoré became a central figure in the Auxerre team. In July 2012, he joined Ligue 1 side FC Lorient after Auxerre were relegated to Ligue 2.

On 31 January 2015, Traoré moved on loan to AS Monaco FC till the end of the 2014–15 season, with an option for AS Monaco to make the deal permanent.[6]

International career

Traoré first represented Burkina Faso at under-17 level where they qualified for the 2005 African U-17 Championship. He scored one goal in the 3–1 defeat to Mali.[7] Traoré scored one goal in the 2012 African Cup of Nations, versus Angola. He scored the goal (in the sixth minute of injury time) which took Burkina Faso through to the 2013 African Cup of Nations at the expense of the Central African Republic and then scored three goals in the 2013 final tournament itself.
