Dortmund in talks to sign Batshuayi on permanent deal .
Borussia Dortmund are in talks to complete a £50 million deal to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, according to the Daily Mail. The Belgian spent the second half of last season on loan at Dortmund, and really impressed. This came after a dissapointing spell at Chelsea, where Batshuayi never really got going. Batshuayi netted 9 times in fourteen games in Germany, before an injury ended his season early at the Westfalenstadion. Chelsea want £50 million for the striker, but reportedly could use Batshuayi as leverage in their pursuit of Dortmund’s American winger Christian Pulisic. The American international is reportedly a key target at Chelsea, with the Blues looking at him with Eden Hazard and Willian both linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge. Bayern look to be the leaders in the pursuit of the winger, who has really impressed since breaking into the Dortmund team and being a key player for the United States at an international level.
