Everton have reportedly joined the list of clubs interested in signing Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi this month (The Mirror).
The Blues hitman has just had his loan spell at Valencia cut short after a poor stint in Spain.
Batshuayi made 21 appearances for Los Che and only managed to score two goals for the club.
Crystal Palace, Fulham and the player’s former club Marseille are all interested, with his agent trying to secure him a permanent deal away from Stamford Bridge.
It would seem that Maurizio Sarri doesn’t see Batshuayi as part of his plans for the future, despite Alvaro Morata, Eden Hazard and Olivier Giroud have all been linked with moves away from Chelsea.
The Mirror claim it would take around £14 million to sign the Belgian.
A possible bargain for Everton
Everton are in desperate need of a new striker, with neither one of Cenk Tosun, Oumar Niasse or Dominic Calvert-Lewin convincing this season.
Marco Silva has felt compelled to use Richarlison out of position more often than not, rather than trust any of the others to come good.
Silva should feed very encouraged by Batshuayi’s apparent availability, and at such a reasonable price too.
Batshuayi showcased some excellent form last season during his loan spell with Borussia Dortmund where he scored nine goals in 14 games, before an injury ended his season there.
He would absolutely be worth the gamble for the Toffees, as he has now has experience in Ligue 1, the Premier League, the Bundesliga and La Liga at the age of just 25.
