AS Monaco have completed the signing of the Burkina Faso international, 26, on loan until the end of the season, with an option to purchase the player in the summer. Alain Traoré is a product of the AJ Auxerre academy, where he was introduced to Champions League football in the 2010-2011 season. After three seasons with FC Lorient, he now joins AS Monaco.
"I'm very happy, very honoured to be able to wear the AS Monaco shirt. My aim is to establish myself here, in this quality team with great players. It's up to me to settle in as quickly as possible."
