Di Marzio tweeted late last night that Chelsea have reached an agreement with Marseille to sign Belgian ace Michy Batshuayi.

The news will be a severe blow to West Ham, who had been chasing the 22-year-old since the window opened.

Crystal Palace will also be disappointed after their €38m bid for the forward was accepted yesterday by the French club.

Di Marzio has confirmed that Chelsea will spend €40m to bring Batshuayi to Stamford Bridge.

Batshuayi is a quick, strong and ambidextrous forward, with capable hold-up abilities but the Belgian is more keen to attack the goal and take every chance he gets to score.

In addition, the Belgian’s prowess in the air, despite being only 5ft 11, gives variety to a team’s attacking plays. His excellent positional awareness and accuracy in front of goal makes Batshuayi a manager’s dream.

We are yet to see Di Marzio wrong on a transfer story so it looks like this will happen bar a nightmare scenario for Antonio Conte’s side.

The former Standard Liege player scored seventeen goals and recorded nine assists in 32 Ligue 1 games last season.
