WOLVES are close to agreeing a season-long loan deal for Chelsea star Michy Batshuayi, according to reports.
Bruno Lage's side are in advanced talks with the Blues and they are willing to pay a proportion of his wages, claims talkSPORT's Alex Crook.
The 28-year-old striker is set for his sixth loan move away from Stamford Bridge with his contract at the club set to expire next summer.
Batshuayi has been a Chelsea player since 2016 making 77 appearances, scoring 25 goals.
His first loan move was at Borussia Dortmund where he netted nine times in 14 matches.
The Belgian's next transfer was to Valencia but the switch proved not as successful.

The Chelsea man offers Wolves notable experience having been capped by the Belgium national team on 45 occasions.
He may not be the only player leaving the West Londoners in the coming days with Malang Sarr seemingly on his way to Monaco.
