AC Milan desperate to sign Batshuayi

AC Milan are monitoring Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi and are set to make a move in January.

Batshuayi has only been at Stamford Bridge since the summer but he could be on his way in the winter if AC Milan offer Chelsea a fee they cannot refuse.

Milan are closely monitoring the 23-year-old’s situation and could approach his agent in the January transfer window, according to the Mirror.

Despite joining Chelsea for £33million only a couple of months ago, the Belgium international has failed to start a Premier League fixture but is top transfer target for Milan manager Vincenzo Montella.

The former Standard Liege and Marseille star scored a brace in Chelsea’s early-season EFL Cup victory over Bristol Rovers and got one more after coming on as a substitute at Watford in the Premier League but is out favour under gaffer Antonio Conte.

Conte has expressed his emotions in the past over Batshuayi, he said: “He’s a young player who can improve a lot in the future.”

However, that will not stop Milan from trying to lure away the Belgian away from Stamford Bridge.
