Talks move to advanced stage for £30m-rated Chelsea attacker


It has been hinted that Chelsea star Michy Batshuayi is close to the exit door at the Stamford Bridge following reports that his negotiation with Crystal Palace over a deal in coming days has entered an advanced stage.

Michy Batshuayi is being linked away from the West London side with English Premier League side Everton and French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco also interested in his signature.

But Crystal Palace seem to have won the race having shown some seriousness as well as opening talks which is now at an advanced stage.

Currently on loan in the Spanish La Liga, Michy Batshuayi is one of the best attackers who have impressed and displayed class performance since the start of the season.

This season, he has played 9 games and scored 4 goals across all competition which makes Crystal Palace seek for his signature in the January transfer window.

Michy Batshuayi has got a contract with the West London side until 2021 with a release clause of £40 million but it is unclear if Chelsea will be willing to let him go while Crystal palace might not be able to meet with the asking price.

The Blues will weigh their options for Michy Batshuayi knowing that their attackers have not been in goal scoring form.
