Toffees keen on permanent deal for Chelsea flop Michy Batshuayi

Valencia coach Marcelino has indicated that he has run out of patience with Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi following his side's defeat to Sporting Gijon on Tuesday night.

Michy Batshuayi's loan from Chelsea to Valencia is to be terminated early, the LaLiga club's sporting director Mateu Alemany has confirmed.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri must not sell or loan out Batshuayi again this month but instead integrate him into the first team for the rest of the season.

"Batshuayi's situation is very clear".

"We are negotiating with several clubs an exit for Batshuayi", Alemany was quoted by Metro UK as saying telling reporters.

The Belgium global joined the Mestalla outfit on a season-long loan during the summer after he was deemed surplus to requirements at Chelsea.




We are expecting an exit in the next few hours or days'. We hope that, for his sake, this can be resolved as soon as possible.

The spell in east Spain has not gone well, however, with the 25-year-old scoring just three goals in 23 games.

But he has struggled to make an impact at Valencia and Alemany said an official announcement regarding his departure from the club could be imminent.

And it is now being reported by The Mirror that Everton are keen on signing the Belgian, who would cost around £14m.

With Everton now sitting 11th in the Premier League, manager Marco Silva may look towards the Chelsea outcast for some more firepower to help the Toffees towards a strong finish to the campaign.
