AS Monaco Vice President has confirmed the club is set to complete the loan signing of Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.
Speaking after a 1-1 draw with Marseille, Club Vice-president and CEO Vadim Vasilyev said talks are underway to bring the striker back to League 1.
The deal is apparently just a half-season loan without an option to make the move permanent.
Earlier this week, Henry admitted he interested in Batshuayi, who spent two seasons at Marseille before joining Chelsea in 2016.
The two worked together when Henry was still a coaching staff with Belgium national team.
Monaco signed Batshuayi’s former Chelsea team-mate Cesc Fabregas on Friday as they bid to preserve their Ligue 1 status.
The move to the South of France, back to Ligue 1 where his goals had most of Europe vying for his services back in 2016, should hopefully provide Michy with a new opportunity he needs to rediscover his scoring form.
Batshuayi has struggled in Spain with scoring a paltry three goals in 23 appearances.
Henry’s side, who have lost three of their last four matches, sit 19th in the table.
