Chelsea want £35m for Michy Batshuayi — report

New, comments

Everton and West Ham are potential suitors

Michy Batshuayi’s fate this winter remains up in the air, with Chelsea favouring his sale over a new loan stint for him. According to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea have set his price at £35m for this deadline day havoc.

Everton appeared as main candidates for Michy’s acquisition, as they cannot sign another Chelsea player on loan since they already have Kurt Zouma in their squad in this setup. But even that is now open to question. According to ESPN’s Chelsea correspondent Liam Twomey, Everton are not expecting to make any signings today.

The Toffees are not alone in the chase, as West Ham have approached Chelsea with a loan offer for Michy. However, Batshuayi’s preference at the moment is to move to Everton on a permanent transfer.

In the meantime, Michy idly waits in Spain to find where he will go next from his sour experience with Valencia. We might as well be just as anxious as he is to see this sorted out.
