Everton’s on loan striker Lacina Traore could be sent back to Monaco after making just one appearance for Roberto Martinez’s team.

The giant striker injured his hamstring in the warm-up ahead of the Blues clash at Chelsea on Saturday.

The injury will be properly diagnosed in the next 48 hours and if it requires surgery he will return to parent club Monaco to receive the appropriate treatment.

‘The injury can be solved by conservative treatment or it can involve surgery – that is a massive decision,’ said Martinez.
