Everton are said to be “working on” a deal to bring Michy Batshuayi to Goodison Park from Chelsea before the end of the month.
Jim White, TalkSport radio host and long-term phone-a-friend candidate for Farhad Moshiri said on his radio show that Everton were keen to bring the Belgian forward to the club, but admitted that there could be barriers in the way.

Everton are working on Michy Batshuayi. They want to bring him there. Whether they can is another matter.
Everton have been linked with Batshuayi in the past but he chose to join Chelsea when the Blues were linked with a £10m move from Standard Liege.
The 25 year old has struggled to cement a place in the Chelsea first team, but has been credited with scoring some important goals for the Londoners. However, his international scoring rate of bagging a goal more than once every two games is what will fire up excitement at Everton.
Currently on loan at Valencia, Batshuayi has only managed one goal in 15 appearances for the Spanish side.
