Everton: Toffees ‘in talks’ to sign Michy Batshuayi

Everton: Toffees ‘in talks’ to sign Michy Batshuayi -Everton News

Everton are ‘in talks’ to sign out-of-favour Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi on a permanent deal this summer, according to football.london journalist Bobby Vincent.

The Lowdown: Chelsea career seemingly over

The 28-year-old attacker has entered the final 12 months of his contract at Stamford Bridge, and he does not appear to be a part of Thomas Tuchel’s plans going forward.

The Belgium international joined the west London outfit in 2016 for £33m, arriving at the club with high expectations. However, he has spent the majority of his Chelsea career on loan at various teams across Europe, having made just 77 appearances for the Blues during his six-year tenure.

The Latest: Vincent’s news

Vincent, who is football.london’s Chelsea correspondent, has shared news of Batshuayi’s future under Tuchel.

Taking to Twitter, the reliable journalist claimed: “Michy Batshuayi in talks with Everton. #EFC want a permanent deal and Chelsea are willing to do business if the price is right. #CFC”

The Verdict: Everton move could do him good

Everton manager Frank Lampard is familiar with the Belgian forward, who he knows during his time in charge of Chelsea.

During the 2019/20 season, the current Toffees boss handed Batshuayi 24 appearances for the Blues, with the striker netting six goals during this period.

Everton fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

Once dubbed a ‘prolific’ goalscorer by journalist Alex Wood, Lampard could be the man to revive the 28-year-old’s Premier League career.

Wit 14 league goals for Besiktas last season, Batshuayi will be looking to maintain his goalscoring form going into the new campaign, and a move to Everton could be the right step in doing so if he wishes to reunite with his former manager.
