According to The Athletic’s Simon Johnson, West Ham United have ruled out making a bid for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi with his ₤110,000-a- week wages putting them and other suitors off.
It is among the reasons Crystal Palace are no longer thinking about the Belgian regardless of costs a ₤ 1 million loan fee on him and paying all of his wage when they took him to Selhurst Park for the second half of last season.
Batshuayi is way down the chain of command at Chelsea and he isn’t in boss Frank Lampard’s first-team strategies.
The Stamford Bridge outfit would like to sell him, and will try to get a large amount for his signature after asking Borussia Dortmund for ₤50 million in 2018.
Chelsea desire near the ₤33 million they paid Marseille for Batshuayi’s signature in 2016, and while West Ham won’ t be keen to do business, the Blues could be prepared to offer him for complimentary, as long as they get Declan Rice in return.
The Athletic’s Simon Johnson declares that providing the Belgium international striker plus cash to lure the Hammers into offering the England midfielder is a possible circumstance.
Chelsea have an interest in Rice but he is viewed as a low-priority finalizing this summer, and it stays to be seen if West Ham would be keen on a player-plus-cash swap offer.
They desire ₤70 million for Rice which has actually put the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United off.
According to Bleacher Report, Spurs would have to offer a various player from Eric Dier, along with cash, to have a possibility of landing the West Ham star this summer, and Chelsea may have to do the very same from the appearance of things.
