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

After mainly being used off the bench after arriving at Chelsea from Marseille in 2016, Batshuayi was sent on loan to Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund during the second half of last season.

Valencia sporting director Mateu Alemany said there is plenty of interest in the Belgian global.

With Everton now sitting 11th in the Premier League, manager Marco Silva may look towards the Chelsea outcast for some more firepower to help the Toffees towards a strong finish to the campaign.

As such, Richarlison has been tasked to lead the line on occasions, although the Brazilian is much comfortable featuring from the left side of the Toffees attack.

"We are negotiating with several clubs an exit for Batshuayi", Alemany was quoted by Metro UK as saying telling reporters.

He has only scored three goals in 23 appearances for Valencia this season.

"I expect he will leave in the coming hours or days", Alemany said. "I've played with him and I know what he could do. He is leaving and it's now a matter of negotiation", he stressed.

And on Tuesday, Valencia boss Marcelino was furious with Batshuayi's performance after a poor 45 minutes that helped Sporting Gijon claim a 2-1 win in their Copa del Rey 2-1 tie.

Marcelinho said: "I think we have to get in some strikers".

"It is clear that patience, in some case, has already run out".
