Wolverhampton Wanderers should consider moving for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi this month.
Nuno Espirito Santo is said to be actively trying to sign a new striker in January, and has been heavily linked with a move for another Blues striker Tammy Abraham in the last few days.
It looks as though the Aston Villa loanee will be staying at Villa Park for the remainder of the season (The Sun).
That means, as things stand, Wolves need to look elsewhere for reinforcements.
According to The Sun, Valencia are ready to send Batshuayi back to Stamford Bridge, after he missed a gilt-edged chance for Los Che in a Copa del Rey match against Sporting Gijon.
Clearly referencing Batshuayi, Marcelino blasted: “I think we have to get in some strikers. I’ve clearly run out of patience with certain individuals.”
Wolves should pounce
Batshuayi’s stint in Spain has been far from fruitful.
He’s made 23 appearances for Valencia and only scored three goals.
The move just hasn’t really worked out for the Belgian, but that should not deter Wolves from making a move.
Batshuayi has demonstrated that he can cut it in the Premier League, playing a significant role in Chelsea’s title victory in 2017.
Many felt that he was unlucky to be loaned to Borussia Dortmund after his contributions. He impressed with the Bundesliga outfit too, scoring seven league goals in 10 appearances before getting injued, so there’s clearly a good player in there.
Wolves should go back to Chelsea and discuss the possibility of taking Batshuayi, who cost the Blues £33 million in 2016, on loan following their failure over Abraham.
Raul Jimenez, as good as he has been, could certainly do with some support.
