Sky Sports is reporting that Premier League title contenders Chelsea are set to complete the signing of Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi.
The Blues have reportedly had a £33.2 million bid accepted by OM, with the Belgium striker expected to put pen to paper on a five-year deal.
West Ham and Crystal Palace were also in the race to recruit Batshuayi, who ultimately decided to sign for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
The latest reports suggest the striker will undergo a medical in Bordeaux, where he is training with Belgium ahead of the Euro 2016 quarter-final match against Wales, where the Red Devils are 8/11 favourites to win in regular time.
Michy Batshuayi had joined Marseille from Standard Liege two years ago, and has since scored 26 goals in 62 league appearances.
The 22-year-old scored for Belgium in the 4-0 win over Hungary in his maiden appearance at a major international competition.
