Leeds offered Chelsea star Michy Batshuayi as Victor Orta is ‘bombarded’ by agents

Leeds have been offered the chance to sign Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi as the Championship winners bid to strengthen their frontline.

Batshuayi is one literally hundreds of players being proposed to Leeds Director of Football Victor Orta, according to Get French Football News.

The Belgium international star has been made available this summer by Chelsea and has apparently garnered interest from Marcelo Bielsa.

Bielsa is well aware than he will need more quality in attack if his side are to avoid relegation in their first campaign back in the big time.

And it seems that the Argentine manager may be able to get Batshuayi for a knockdown price.

Football Insider claim that Chelsea valued the 26-year-old at £50m two years ago, but he could now be available for £25m, due to his contract expiring next year.

The former Dortmund loanee has scored eight goals and three assists in all completions this season, which averages out at a goal every 93 minutes.

Meanwhile, Bielsa is set to sign Wigan striker Joe Gelhardt following their return to the Premier League.
