Everton launch shock £40million bid for Chelsea outcast Michy Batshuayi
Everton will make a shock move for Chelsea flop Michy Batshuayi

MARCO SILVA will make a dramatic move for Michy Batshuayi next week.

The Everton boss wants the Chelsea striker to solve his problems in attack and will launch a bid to land him in a £40million deal.

Monaco had agreed to take the Belgium international until the end of the season but Chelsea blocked the deal as they want cash.

Everton’s proposal to take Batshuayi immediately could work in their favour, despite the 25-year-old being keen on a move to France.

Silva will make the ex-Marseille star his first-choice No9 at Goodison after Richarlison’s form dipped off and just Dominic Calvert-Lewin for serious competition.

Batshuayi has been a target after returning from a his loan at Valencia and being made available by Chelsea.

The Belgian, 25, struggled on loan in Spain, scoring just one goal in La Liga and managing only four starts.

Last season, Batshuayi was a hit at Borussia Dortmund, scoring nine goals in 14 matches on loan in the second half of the season.

Everton will be hoping Batshuayi has a similar impact on the club as the last Belgian striker who moved from Stamford Bridge to Goodison Park: Romelu Lukaku.

The Merseyside club spent £28m on Lukaku in 2013, with the striker going on to score 87 goals in 166 matches before a £75million move to Manchester United.
