Michy Batshuayi is set for a return to Stamford Bridge after a stunted experience at Valencia this campaign.
Valencia picked the Belgium international striker up last season when Chelsea looked to trade him out on loan. But Batshuayi has failed to hit top form for the Spanish side.
Batshuayi joined Valencia on what was supposed to be a season-long loan deal on papers, however his return of three goals in 23 appearances for the Spanish topflight outfit has underlined the need to farm him out once again.
Valencia have confirmed they are ready to cut his stay at the club and are relentlessly searching the market for clubs that are willing to take the striker in.
In a statement on Thursday, Valencia’s Sporting director Mateu Alemany said, “we’re negotiating with several clubs an exit for Batshuayi.”
Batshuayi is eager to leave and Alemany is hopeful they can conclude on his transfer in the next few days.
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, however has struck out the youngster in his plans for Blues this season, as he continues to wait for the arrival of a striker this month.
Chelsea are fourth in the Premier League, and have advanced into the fourth round of the FA Cup, seeing off Nottingham Forest.
