Lille are ready to pay £36million to land Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, according to reports.
The Belgium ace has been used as backup since joining Stamford Bridge from Marseille in a £33m move last summer.
He scored the Blues’ Premier League winning goal last term but managed just five in total.
And this season he has netted just once – in his own net against Tottenham on the weekend.
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte broke the bank to sign Alvaro Morata for £65m from Real Madrid last month.
And Batshuayi, 23, looks set for another campaign mainly on the sidelines should he stay at Stamford Bridge.
Marcelo Bielsa, who coached the striker at Marseille, is the man willing to bring Batshuayi back to France with Lille, according to the Mirror.
The Ligue 1 side are struggling this season having won just one of their three opening games.
Chelsea would make a £3m profit on the player but with rebel Diego Costa refusing to return to England and resolve his stand-off with the club, would also be left with just one hitman up front.
Spain striker Costa, 28, has been ordered by Atletico Madrid to make peace with the Blues before they will consider signing him.
