How Much Dortmund Will Have To Pay For Michy Batshuayi

Michy Batshuayi has been a revelation since joining Borussia Dortmund on loan but he won't come the cheap if the Bundesliga side go about snapping him up permanently.

Since stepping in as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's replacement after the Gabon international moved to Arsenal, Batshuayi has scored seven goals for BVB - the latest being a dramatic last-gasp winner against Eintracht Frankfurt at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.

With his form so good, Dortmund are keen on adding the Belgium international to the ranks but according to BILD, they will have to pay Chelsea €60 million for his services.

Dortmund got a reported £56 million for Aubameyang when he joined Arsenal and it makes complete sense for them to reinvest those funds in Batshuayi, a direct replacement who has hit the ground running.

Skipper Marco Reus, who penned a new deal until 2023 last week, wants the former Marseille man to be at Signal Iduna Park beyond this season.

"I'd be very pleased if Michy were to stay," Reus told journalists after the 3-2 win over Frankfurt.

"He's shown how important he can be for us."

Do you think Batshuayi and Dortund are a perfect fit?
