Traore, who joined Everton in January on loan from AS Monaco but has yet to feature due to a hamstring injury, could make his debut Sunday against Hull City, the club's official web site reports.

Traore was injured when he arrived at Goodison Park, but he was set to make his Premier League debut at the end of February before aggravating his hamstring injury in warmups. Finally fit, he could make an appearance off the bench for Everton this weekend, with the team publicly calling for him to return next season.

Traore, who has yet to feature for Everton after joining on loan from AS Monaco in January, will likely not play this season due to his hamstring injury, the club's official web site reports.

Manager Roberto Martinez said he thinks Traore will be available for the World Cup, but the final Premier League game against Hull will likely come too soon. Martinez has stated recently that he would like Traore back next season, but it is unclear if Monaco will agree to another loan or sale.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez said he would like to keep Traore (hamstring) beyond the current season, reports Sky Sports.

Traore joined on loan from Monaco in January, but has endured a number of injuries. He is currently dealing with a hamstring injury and the team has not set a date for his expected return.

Traore is expected to be out for two months after re-injuring his hamstring ahead of Everton's match against Chelsea on February 25, the Liverpool Echo reports. "He should be back in the next seven to eight weeks so it's not the end of Lacina at Everton," said manager Roberto Martinez

Traore, who is on loan from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, will remain with Everton, as there is a possibility he could return for the FA Cup final, if the Toffees make it that far, or potentially the Premier League season finale.

Traore, who re-injured his hamstring ahead of last weekend's match at Chelsea, could have surgery to fix the issue, which would likely keep him out through the end of his loan agreement, the BBCreports. "The injury can be solved by conservative treatment or surgery - that is a massive decision," manager Roberto Martinez said. "If Lacina is going to be out for any longer than two or three months then the loan period is over."

Traore joined Everton on loan from Ligue 1 outfit AS Monaco in January, and was headed for his first start in England last weekend before pulling up lame in warmups. If he does undergo surgery, the Toffees will not be able to see how well he could have been up front with Romelu Lukaku, who is expected to return from an ankle injury this weekend.

Traore (hamstring) was confirmed to have soft tissue damage similar to the injury he just overcame after pulling up in warmup for a match against Chelsea last weekend and is expected to miss a number of weeks, according to the Daily Mail.

While no return date has been set for the striker, the news gives a bit more detail than last weekend when he was pulled out of action. The team expect a number of weeks of recovery for the player.

Traore, who was announced as Everton's starting striker against Chelsea on Saturday, pulled up with an injury during warmup and had to be replaced in the starting XI by Steven Naismith, according to George O'Keeffe of the Liverpool Echo.

Terrible news for Traore, who was getting his first start for the club after coming over in January on loan from AS Monaco. With Romelu Lukaku (ankle) expected back next week, it'll be interesting to see if manager Roberto Martinez makes the jump to start both big men up front together, if Traore is even fit to play.

Traore got his first start as a member of Everton during Sunday's FA Cup match against Swansea City. He rewarded manager Roberto Martinez for the selection by scoring a goal in his first appearance.

Traore could be a good fantasy option as long as Romelu Lukaku (ankle) remains out. Unfortunately for Traore, Lukaku is expected back sooner (March 1) rather than later.
