Chelsea ready for £40m deal with Everton


English Premier League outfit Chelsea are reportedly ready to have Michy Batshuayi sold to Everton in this winter transfer window.

Michy Batshuayi has been recalled from his loan at the Spanish La Liga outfit Valencia after failing to impress at the club.

Everton are reportedly ready to have the signature of the star player with the Blues ready to hand him out for £40 million on a permanent deal but the Toffees are requesting loan deal.

Meanwhile, Everton cannot land him on loan anymore as they have already got Chelsea’s French defender Kurt Zouma on loan.

However, they are keen on having Michy Batshuayi as they struggle to put up quality performances in the attack and have identified the star player as a good fit who can rekindle his career at Everton.

Everton are therefore not alone in the race for Michy Batshuayi as French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco are also all out for his signature with the Thierry Henry side out to have a perfect second half of the season by strengthening their squad.

Monaco recently landed Spain international Cesc Fabregas from the West London outfit which means Michy Batshuayi will be the second capture from the Stamford Bridge should they win the race ahead of Everton.
