Everton enter the race for Chelsea outcast Batshuayi

Galatasaray have received a transfer boost in their pursuit of Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi after Valencia general director Mateu Alemany confirmed that his loan stay will be terminated.

Alemany's assessment heavily implies that Batshuayi will be moving to a different club on loan rather than returning to Chelsea. "For the good of the player and the club, we are looking for a solution". We are expecting an exit in the next few hours or days'.

The Belgium global struggled for playing time at Los Che scoring just three times in 23 appearances. Valencia say he will leave the club as soon as possible but his time in Spain might not be finished.

If we take into consideration, his very bad record with Valencia this season, there is always a risk associated in signing Batshuayi but a loan deal till the end of the season certainly wouldn't hurt Everton from a financial perspective, especially with Chelsea likely to sign a new forward this month. "He is leaving and it's now a matter of negotiation", he stressed.

There has been no indication from Chelsea that they want to keep hold of him, despite the club's striker struggles with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud.

However, it appears unlikely that the 25-year-old will remain with the Blues - despite their own frontline concerns - and according to France Football, Monaco are keen to add Batshuayi to their squad.

Following the January 2 goalless draw with Southampton, Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri dismissed the idea of recalling Batshuayi, who scored the decisive goal in the 2016-17 Premier League title success and spent the second half of last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund.
