be a good move for both though, he needs to settle and prove himself, and we need a good striker with potential

Come from Dom King so there's defo something in it.

The Mirror are chatting 14mil as well which would be a no brainer but I'd amazed if we got him that cheap.

I'd be happy to take a chance on him for anything up to 25mil.

Bit concerned that Valencia weren't arsed about him at all. 3 goals in 23 appearances this season. Subbed off at HT last week, and the manager slaughtered him and basically said he wasn't upto the required level.

Heís a bit of a crackpot though, isnít he?

12th in the league as well.

Sounds like a manager whoís lost his players.

He was great at Dortmund last year. Feel like heís a player who needs guidance

Still 3 in 23, and missing sitters (which I've seen him do numerous times) is a bit concerning. It's not often that loaning clubs send players back early.

He seems to have been around a few years now without anyone really rating him enough to make him first choice or take a plunge on him. Canít help feeling we should be looking out for the next up and coming Batshuayi, at the stage he was at when he signed for Chelsea.
Title: Re: Michy Batshuayi
Post by: kramer0 on January 11, 2019, 12:36:42 AM
Buying low is often a good idea and it's unlikely to get much lower than this for him. There's definitely talent there.

I'd expect a sizable discount, though.

would honestly make a lot of sense that signing, he just needs a run of games, we'll create chances for him - if he's good in the air he should get a few here, digne is crossing balls in dying for someone on the end of them

had a really good record at liege, marsielle and Dortmund last season, Valencia obviously not working probably the style, we cross a lot etc, he'd get chances here

Yes but heís often coming off the bench, even at Marseille.

He does score though, but could be that heíd be like Hernandez that when it goes well everything looks great but if the team isnít playing well, what do they offer.

14 million raises alarm bells. Unless he's in the last year of his contract.
Title: Re: Michy Batshuayi
Post by: brap2 on January 11, 2019, 02:20:35 AM
Yeah was going to say he’s basically a chicharito type. Very good at one particular thing, finishing in the box. Hold up / link up / running channels all weak tbh. Decent dribbler actually.

We don’t make chances and I imagine Tosun would maybe bury them if we did, so he doesn’t help there.

One good thing is he’s never had a season in his career where he’s taken less than 3 shots per 90, so he’s certainly got a nose for it, and if the fee was anything near that reported one i’d bite your bloody arm off still.

Exactly the kind of player we see other clubs buy that we always say we need to emulate if we are to close the gap... And exactly the type of player Brands has been successful buying in the past.

Yet despite that I feel very underwhelmed by the idea of signing him.
Title: Re: Michy Batshuayi
Post by: Bluedylan on January 11, 2019, 02:47:28 AM
Need to move away from punts.

Chelsea donít rate him, Valencia donít rate him and Dortmund went in for Alcacer rather than having him back.

Just donít see it myself.

Wait til summer and try to go big on a proper striker with the age/profile/potential of Richarlison.

Id rather keep our powder dry than sign him, I don't think he's good enough. Although if we got rid of Cenk and/or Niasse and it's a minimal investment it'll probably be worth it

Title: Re: Michy Batshuayi
Post by: blueToffee on January 11, 2019, 03:52:35 AM
If we're shipping someone out, then fair enough. He's better than what we have, and if we were to get in a better option to start, he'd be a better option from the bench than what we currently have.

That said, while he does get amongst the goals I'm never super keen on strikers who frequently miss what at this level would be considered easier chances. You mostly felt with Lukaku he'd take the one on one chance, or the ball that falls to him in the 6 yard area, that kind of thing...I don't think Batshuayi would be that type of striker, it'd be more of a coin flip. Not, that we have that striker right now either mind you.

Looks like he's on the move though, that much is clear, not so clear if our name is just being used for the rumour mill/to drum up interest or if there is something in it.

I think he's an example of why youngsters with potential shouldn't sign for the likes of Chelsea so young, they've around 40 out on loan this season.

I think he'll do well with a club that wants him and shows him support. He'd be ace for us I think.

BREAKING NEWS

Everton are interested in Chelseaís Michy Batshuayi - but only if they can have him on a permanent deal, according to Sky sources.

The Belgium striker is set to return from his loan spell at Valencia this month after struggling to make an impact and the Toffees are keen if they can unload one of either Cenk Tosun or Oumar Niasse this month.

Everton, who aleady have defender Kurt Zouma on loan from Stamford Bridge, cannot take Batshuayi on loan due to restrictions on the number of players one club can have from another.

Post by: bluestevie on January 11, 2019, 06:07:52 AM
No brainer at that price, sell Oumar to Palace/Cardiff/whoever and bring Batshuayi in. Look at the chances wasted in recent weeks, particularly the balls across the area in the Leicester game late on and the simple chance Tosun wasted last week, a player like Batshuayi would have gobbled them up with ease

Mitrovic is a proven goal scorer in this league.

Also I like how Llorente is more of a fox in the box.

But Batshuyi looks good though.

Think Monaco is a loan deal, he gets on well with Thierry Henry, Monaco a lovely climate and tax free, speaks the lingo, probably has a better chance of starting there than with us shoukd we get a star striker in the summer.

It will be the Henry factor,  they arnt setting the french league alight at the mo granted,  have they got euro football?  The offer of playing in a prestige area of europe.  Maybe have more money in bank due to tax relief.

Canít see it happening but 40m sounds a lot more realistic than 14m.

What do you get for 14m these days? Certainly not someone with his record and residual hype.

Not to say heís worth it because he almost certainly ainít, but 14m was pie in the sky I suppose.

Post by: kramer0 on January 17, 2019, 10:19:32 PM
£40m is nuts. No fucking way we should make that deal, even if we free up the funds.

Somewhere out there, there's a genuinely good midfielder who can be bought for less than £40m. Go find that guy instead and make due with Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, and maybe even Sigurdsson (if Silva is willing to experiment) up top for the rest of the season.

I still say we'll score plenty with some control in midfield.

30 million Euros (or about 26 million pounds, depending on latest Brexit developments) sounds plausible. Maybe they're trying to get us to 40 with addons etc if he does well..? Possible.

Considering Solanke's fee and the market in general, particularly in January, 14 million seemed way on the low end. Unfortunately, once you think 14 is the price, anything above that might seem less of a deal but I'd say low to mid 20s in pounds is probably pretty fair.

I don't know about this one.

We've had a shedload of players in and we're playing shite. Rather than throwing another player into the mix - I think we may be better working on our shape, system, footballing identity.

It will be better in the summer looking for the right shaped pieces to fit into our team but until we have some semblance of an identity out there on the pitch - I don't think we will even know what we need to add.

Plus we'll get rinsed in January so why risk wasting the money? It'll even give younger platers like DCL and Lookman game-time and good development.

Pacy, strong, athletic and a good finisher. From what I've seen he's pretty poor at link up play. I like him as a player, but we don't create a lot for a player like him. 35m is way too much for him though.

I don't think he is a great finisher, yes his record at Dortmund was good, but he only played 10 games. It was roughly 1 in every 2+ games at Liege and Marseille despite playing in the stronger teams in a weak league. Didn't have many opportunities at Chelsea but again it was 7 in 32. None of these are great, they're average, and that's what he is.

I have confidence in brands too, but I thought his introduction was to open up different channels, get in the next superstar from abroad, unknown talent etc? I get that it takes time to implement and he hasn't been here long but this strikes me as a desperate, lazy signing, if at all true that we'd have been looking at under Walsh, and I actually think we were?

Batshuayi will just be so isolated up top and look so bad.

His hold up play was very Lukaku-esque at Chelsea. Their fans were pissed off with the ball bouncing off him all the time, according to a pal who supports them.

Doesnít sound like what we need up top. Richarlison is a better finisher and his link up play with his back to goal is equally as suspect.

Have liked him for a while but I am a bit surprised Brands isnít thinking a bit more outside the box or a bit more...err...midfieldy, especially if the price is anywhere near that.

My opinion on him is that in a side that creates lots of chances he will eat them up, but he isnít going to put in a hyage shift in, and he might not be able to magic something up through sheer will or quality like lukaku could.

Not what (I think) we need ultimately. He wonít press and he wonít provide a solid base to play off either.

If we get him obviously it will be exciting tho. Nothing more exciting than Everton signing a new striker like.

Hes signed, well according to Wiki:  :whistle:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michy_Batshuayi

Michy Batshuayi-Atunga (French pronunciation: ​[mi(t)ʃi batʃu.a.(j)i]; born 2 October 1993) is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Premier league club Everton, and for the Belgium national team.

He began his professional career at Standard LiŤge in 2011, scoring 44 goals in 120 games across all competitions. His 21 goals in the 2013Ė14 Belgian Pro League made him the second-highest scorer and contributed to his Ebony Shoe Award. He then transferred to Marseille for £4.5 million, helping them reach the 2016 Coupe de France Final. In July 2016, he was signed by Chelsea for £33 million, and scored the goal that won the Premier League title in his debut season.

Sign Zouma permanently and get him on loan.

While unlikely, this is exactly what I'd do if it were even a remote possibility. Zouma would be a great signing for us. For £35m I'm not convinced on Michy, I'd rather have a loan with an option to buy to see whether we get the Dortmund Michy or the Valencia version. I reckon we could find better if we didn't panic and waited for summer.
Title: Re: Michy Batshuayi

Then if he turns out to be an absolute bag of shite we don't lose out.

I think it's a reasonable price for him (A lot of people were thinking the £90m we got for Lukaku was cheap and so i'm using that as a yardstick).

My main concern is that no striker in the world would shine in a team that is as poor as creating chances as us. It's simply not the #1 position we need to consider to reinforce in a window where we may only be getting one player in.
