Chelsea FC are in talks with Borussia Dortmund about the possibility of selling Michy Batshuayi to the German club for a hefty transfer fee, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the Bundesliga outfit have held further discussions with the west London club about the possibility of signing the 24-year-old striker on a permanent deal.

Batshuayi impressed during his six-month loan spell at Dortmund after having been deemed surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge back in January.

The same story says that the Belgium international is open to a permanent move to Dortmund and hopes to have his future resolved shortly after the World Cup.

The article also claims that Chelsea FC are going to want a transfer fee close to £50m for the Belgian forward.

However, the Blues are also potentially keen to use Dortmund’s interest in Batshuayi in an attempt to sign Christian Pulisic from the German club, according to the same story.

Chelsea FC are likely to be on the lookout for a number of players this summer as the Blues look to assemble a squad capable of challenging for the title next season.

The Blues finished fifth and won the FA Cup in Antonio Conte’s second campaign in charge in west London.
