Leeds United have been offered to sign Michy Batshuayi for £25 million, according to HLN. The Chelsea striker has entered the last year of his contract, as Frank Lampard looks to offload the Belgian who will soon turn 27.

Despite Batshuayi’s cut-price, it is still massively expensive, with the £25 million figure still arguably too high. The Belgian is on more than £100,000 a week too, and has had little game-time at Stamford Bridge, despite his impressive record when out on loan to Crystal Palace, Dortmund and Valencia.

Leeds aren’t the only team with Batshuayi on their radar, with West Ham rejecting the chance for Batshuayi and Barkley in a swap move for Declan Rice, according to The Times.

The report from HLN, they go on to state that it is yet to be seen if The Belgian would be open to a move up north due to his love for living in London.

It remains to be seen if Leeds will move on a deal for Batshuayi, as Phil Hay at The Athletic reported Leeds’ initial interest.
