Ligue1 giant keen on £40m-rated Chelsea centre-forward


French Ligue 1 side are desperate to overcome their form crisis as they are all out for more additions in the coming winter transfer market to bolster their team.

The French side have failed to win games with their frontline which make them keen on Chelsea loanee centre-forward Michy Batshuayi to help make an impact on the team.

However, Monaco face big competition from English Premier League side Everton but manager Thierry Henry is reported to be ready to do all it takes to land the forward in January.

The Belgium international has been tipped to be a perfect addition to the Thierry Henry side having had an impressive season so far.

Only joined the West London side in 2016 with a fee of about £34 million from Marseille and impressed in his first season but could not find a way in the Maurizio Sarri team which made him leave on a loan spell.

So far this season, the Belgium international has scored a total 4 goals in the 9 games under his belt.

However, he has got a contract with the West London side until 2021 and has a release clause of £40 million which the French Ligue 1 side must meet before landing the star player.
