Confirmed: Striker to become Antonio Conte's first summer signing after passing medical


Michy Batshuayi is edging closer to a move to Chelsea after passing a medical in Bordeaux, Sky Sports has revealed.

The Belgium international will become Antonio Conte's first summer signing at Stamford Bridge.

West Ham United, Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Juventus were all interested in the youngster according to reports in Italy and England.

It is unclear if the transfer means that Diego Costa will leave the Blues to return to Atletico Madrid.
