Shakhtar Donetsk signs Traore
The 20-year-old striker Lassina Traore has signed a contract with Ukrainian Shakhtar Donetsk, which binds him to the club until 2026.
Lassina Traore has impressed for Ajax this season, where it has turned into 29 matches, 10 goals and 9 assists across all tournaments. However, there has been a lot of innings out of these 29 matches, and therefore his state looks even better if you look at direct goal involvement per 90 minutes played - here he is listed for 1.13 goals or assists.
The Ukrainian club had won their domestic league for a full four years in a row before this season, but this season it was just a second place with a full nine points after the winners from Dynamo Kiev. They must therefore strengthen the team, and they are now trying to do so with the young, promising striker from Burkina Faso.
