Monaco coach Henry confirms interest for Chelsea striker Batshuayi

AS Monaco coach Thierry Henry has confirmed interest in Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.

Having welcomed a deal for Blues midfielder Cesc Fabregas, Henry has now declared he's keen on Batshuayi.

The striker worked with Henry when the Frenchman was No2 to Belgium coach Roberto Martinez.

Batshuayi is now available after seeing his loan with Valencia cut short.

"Michy Batshuayi? We met in Belgium. We'll see what happens, but he's a player that can be interesting, that's for sure," declared Henry.
