Marco Silva is willing to take a gamble on the Belgian striker after his loan spell at Valencia was terminated
Everton are lining up a dramatic move for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, reports claim.
According to The Sun, the Toffees will launch a £40million bid to land the Belgium international next week.
Batshuayi has been made available by Chelsea after his disappointing loan spell at Valencia was terminated.
It is understood Monaco had agreed to take him on loan until the end of the season, but the Blues are more interested in selling.
Marco Silva is keen to solve his problems up front, with Richarlison struggling in a centre-forward role and 21-year-old Dominic Calvert-Lewin his only serious competition.
The Everton boss clearly doesn’t fancy Cenk Tosun, who has been linked with a move to Crystal Palace this month.
Batshuayi struggled on loan in Spain, starting four La Liga games and scoring just one goal.
However, he was a hit at Borussia Dortmund last season, scoring nine goals in 14 matches on loan in the second half of the season.
