Kandia Émile Traoré (born 5 July 1980 in Abidjan) is an Ivorian football striker.

Club career[edit]

He started his career at Tunisian club Espérance Tunis, before moving to Le Havre in 2005. In January 2008, he signed a three and a half deal with FC Sochaux-Montbéliard. On 17 July 2009, SM Caen have signed the Ivorian forward from Sochaux on loan for a season.

International career[edit]

Following an impressive start to the 2006–07 Ligue 2 season, he was called up to the national squad for the friendly against Sweden on 15 November 2006, making his debut as a substitute. In March 2007, he was one of four players to receive a late call-up for the Ivorian's African Cup of Nations qualifier against Madagascar in Antananarivo, due to injuries to other members of the squad. He was also the member of the team at 2002 African Cup of Nations.
