LEEDS will reportedly have to stump up £20million if they wish to prise Michy Batshuayi away from Chelsea.
The 26-year-old has been deemed as surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge with Frank Lampard having an arsenal of strikers at his disposal.
Timo Werner is set to lead the line for the Blues next term, while Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham are also vying to start.

As a result, Chelsea are willing to cash in on Batshuayi as they look to raise funds for other transfers.
The Belgian international – who scored six goals in 24 games for Chelsea during the 2019/20 season – hasn't featured in the Premier League since February 29.
But the ex-Marseille man has no shortage of suitors with West Ham one club ready to take a punt on him.
And Belgian news outlet Het Laatste Nieuws report how Leeds are also weighing up an offer to bring him to Elland Road.
They claim that Marcelo Bielsa is a huge fan of the striker having worked with him at Stade Velodrome.
It has been stated that Chelsea will not entertain offers less than £20m.
Should the Whites manage to secure his services for that fee, the West Londoners would have lost £13m having spent £33m on him in 2016.
However it has been suggested that Batshuayi's £100,000-a-week wages could be a stumbling block.
Meanwhile it is understood he loves living in London, giving the Hammers a boost in their quest to sign him.
