Chelsea close in on signing Gonzalo Higuain on loan after making official offer to Juventus

Chelsea would rather sell Batshuayi for £40m to Everton, rather than sanction another six-month loan, but the player would prefer to go to Monaco.

It remains to be seen whether or not Monaco would be prepared, or could afford to commit to signing Batshuayi permanently at the end of a loan.

Despite the fact he cost £33.2m from Marseille two-and-a-half years ago and has failed to make much of an impact at Chelsea, going on loan to Borussia Dortmund and Valencia, the club want to make a profit on Batshuayi.

Confirming the fact Chelsea would prefer to cash in on Batshuayi, Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev said: “We have an agreement with Valencia and Batshuayi, but not with Chelsea, who prefer a permanent move.”
