MICHY BATSHUAYI has been offered a transfer lifeline by Fenerbahce after his deadline day move to Nottingham Forest collapsed.
The 28-year-old Chelsea striker was heading to the City Ground to increase the newly-promoted club’s spending to over £150MILLION this summer.

However, the Forest move was scuppered at the last minute because the documents were not sent on time.
Now Fenerbahce have announced that they have agreed a fee with Chelsea for the ace, who is now heading to Turkey to finalise the transfer and undergo a medical.
Batshuayi is looking to end a difficult tenure at Chelsea having made just 77 appearances and scoring 25 goals since his arrival in 2016.
The forward has been loaned out FIVE times during his spell at Stamford Bridge.

And with his contract at the club set to expire next summer, the Blues were looking to recoup some money on the Belgian.
He was not named as part of boss Thomas Tuchel’s 25-man Premier League squad and looked set to spend the next few months in the wilderness.
However, with the transfer window in Turkey still open, he has now finally managed to secure an exit from Chelsea.
Batshuayi was last seen in the English top flight at Crystal Palace, moving across London for two stints at Selhurst Park.

He spent last season on loan in Turkey at Besiktas, scoring 14 goals in 33 matches.
Chelsea forked out £33m to Marseille to sign Batshuayi but he spent most of time in West London playing back-up to Diego Costa and Tammy Abraham in between his loan moves away.
However, he did score the goal that clinched Chelsea’s last league title in 2017 under Antonio Conte.
