Chelsea striker set to join Besiktas?

Batshuayi close to permanent Chelsea exit

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi could make the permanent move to Besiktas, a report from Foot Mercato claims.

The Belgian has spent the past five years with the Blues, but he has made just 77 appearances in all competitions.

He has had five different loan spells away from the club, and he could now leave the club on a permanent deal.

Besiktas have entered negotiations with the European champions, and they are eyeing a cut-price deal for the Belgian.

The Blues spent a hefty €39 million to sign him in 2016, but they are unlikely to recoup anywhere close to that figure.

With just 11 months left on his contract, the west London outfit are keen to cut their losses. Batshuayi could be sold for just €8m.

The Blues are also expected to sanction the sale of Tammy Abraham between now and the close of the transfer window.

Abraham has been linked with Arsenal and Roma. The latter have agreed a fee, but have yet to finalise personal terms with the striker.
