Monaco have emerged as the frontrunners to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi after his loan spell at Valencia was cut short, according to Le10 Sport.
It is understood the Belgium international’s agent, Meissa N’Diaye, is on a move to hold further talks regarding a move to Ligue 1 for his client.
Everton are interested in a deal to take Batshuayi to Goodison Park, but would have to sign either him or defender Kurt Zouma, who is on loan from with the Toffees, permanently to do so.
Crystal Palace have also enquired about Batshuayi in the past, while the 25-year-old also has admirers, other than Monaco, from overseas.
On Monaco’s pursuit of Batshuayi, Henry said: “We have worked together with Belgium. We will see what happens. But he could be an interesting player. For sure.”
Batshuayi would also become the second Chelsea player to move to the Stade Louis II during the January window, with Cesc Fabregas set to complete his permanent transfer once a replacement is found by Maurizio Sarri’s side.
