Chelsea may enter the race for Michy Batshuayi after the player snubbed interest from West Ham. The Daily Mirror reports:
Chelsea ponder £31million Michy Batshuayi swoop after Belgium striker snubbed West Ham transfer bid
The 22-year-old Belgium international, who has scored twice in his first two caps for his country, has been the subject of intense transfer speculation for well over a year.
And it’s easy to see why. He has not only become a regular scorer at a young age – the Belgian hit 39 in 97 games for Standard Liege between 2011-2014 and has followed that up with 26 goals in 62 league games for Marseille – but he is also a big strong target man with pace and good technique.
With this sort of physique and athleticism, TFF can easily imagine him being a success in The Premier League and we may well see him in England come August.
Chelsea have been linked this summer to Alvaro Morata as the future of Diego Costa seems uncertain. Latest rumours suggest that the Spain international may return to Atletico this summer.
The dynamic 22-year-old was named in the final 23 man Belgium squad for EURO 2016 despite intense competition for places in what is viewed by many as a golden generation of Belgian football.
Chelsea supporters: Would Batshuayi be a better and more dynamic fit than Alvaro mortar up front next season?
