Antonio Conte look to have secured his first signing after the Marseille striker turned down the chance to join Crystal Palace and prepares for a move to Stamford Bridge
Chelsea will sign Michy Batshuayi in a Ksh 4.5 Billion [€40 million] deal, the Belgium international has agreed a five-year deal and the deal is due to be announced on Wednesday.
Crystal Palace had offered €38m to Marseille for the 22-year-old but the striker has turned down a move to Alan Pardew’s side. Batshuayi, who scored with his first touch in Belgium’s 4-0 victory over Hungary on Sunday, will be Antonio Conte’s first Chelsea signing.
