And France Football claim the Blues flop is at the top of his wanted list.

Batshuayi, 25, has failed to produce the goods since his arrival at Stamford Bridge in 2016 and has found the net just seven times in 32 Premier League appearances.

He had a successful spell at Borussia Dortmund cut short by injury last season before heading to Valencia in the summer.

But the Belgium international has bagged just twice in 20 games for the Spanish outfit and is now due to be sent back to Chelsea.
