West Ham are believed to have applied for a work permit for Ivory Coast striker Lacina Traore and should find out if one will be granted next Monday.

The 23-year-old completed a move from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala to Monaco this week but looks set to join the Irons on loan until the end of the campaign.

The 6'8" striker has been a regular for his country recently but still hasn't played the required number of internationals to automatically receive a work permit.
