Chelsea very keen to make 22-year-old forward their first January signing

Antonio Conte sends Chelsea board strong message over key duo's contracts

Reports are claiming Chelsea will offer Michy Batshuayi to Monaco as part of a deal to sign Thomas Lemar

The Daily Telegraph is saying that the west London side are keen on landing the 22-year-old Monaco forward, who was heavily linked with Arsenal in the summer, as Antonio Conte looks to bolster his attacking options at Stamford Bridge.

The same report says  Chelsea are weighing up an £80m transfer bid to try and sign Lemar from Monaco in the January window.

The story claims that Monaco were one of the clubs potentially interested in signing Batshuayi in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea have been looking for a target man to help out Morata, and the club are weighing up a big January bid for £80million-rated Lemar who would offer Conte a host of options.

The Blues’s interest in Lemar also raises the prospect of Monaco asking for players in return and sporting director Michael Emenalo is known to be a big fan of Batshuayi, who he helped to sign for the Blues before his resignation.
