Report: Wolves have made an offer to sign Michy Batshuayi

Wolves have reportedly made an offer to sign Michy Bathshuayi.

That’s according to 90min, who say the striker is also wanted by Frank Lampard at Everton.

Wanderers fans are on a major high right now after the club swooped to sign Matheus Nunes from Sporting CP.

The club have splashed £42 million on the Portugal international, which is a club-record fee.

His signing is seen as a major coup, with a number of top clubs reported to have been interested in him.

It is expected now that Wolves will focus their efforts on signing a new striker to complete their squad for 2022/23.

One player apparently on Wanderers’ radar is Batshuayi.

Interest from the club was reported a couple of weeks ago, but the links have been fairly quiet of late.

90min say that there is now an offer on the table from Wolves – although it is not clarified whether that is a loan offer or a permanent bid.

Batshuayi is surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge.

Despite the recent exits of Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner, the Belgium international is still behind the likes of Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling in the pecking order.

And at the moment, Chelsea are being linked with a host of strikers.

Batshuayi or Ramos would be the final piece of the jigsaw for Wolves

Wolves’ squad is taking shape very nicely indeed.

Players have returned to the club from loan spells, like Morgan Gibbs-White and Adama Traore, and the three new signings all add quality and depth.

If Wolves can now add one new striker to their squad then they will be in business.

Batshuayi would potentially be a really good addition since he has experience of the Premier League. He also scored 14 goals last season for Besiktas.

John Hartson said of him in 2019 after his first goal on loan for Crystal Palace (Daily Mail): “He’s clearly got genuine quality, look at the clubs he’s been with.”

And Lampard, who managed him at Chelsea, said in 2019 (via chelsea.com): “Michy has talent, he can hold the ball up and use both feet and can score goals, and he is important for us. He got his chance and scored goals tonight which is good because we need options up front.”

But Wanderers are also being linked with Goncalo Ramos, who would be another very exciting signing from Portugal after Nunes.
