Wolves Considering Loan Move For Chelsea Striker Michy Batshuayi

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi could be leaving on loan this summer amid interest from Wolves, according to reports.

A second Belgian striker could be on their way out of Stamford Bridge this summer as the Blues look to cut deadwood from the squad.

Following in the footsteps of international teammate Romelu Lukaku, who re-joined Inter Milan on loan after a woeful one-year stint at Chelsea, Batshuayi may be on the way to another Premier League side.

After spending the last two seasons on loan, firstly with Crystal Palace and most recently with Besiktas where he scored 14 goals in 33 Super Lig appearances, the forward looks set to face the same fate again this year.

In the striker position the Blues currently have a selection of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Armando Broja and Batshuayi for Thomas Tuchel to pick from.

However, German striker Werner has been linked with a return move to his former club RB Leipzig which narrows down the choices.

The west London side have been eyeing up other options in the transfer market though, as they look to fill the void Lukaku left.

The Blues have been reported to be monitoring 19-year-old RB Salzburg striker, Benjamin Sesko, with Todd Boehly holding a meeting with the striker's agent.

It has recently emerged though that they have been offered the chance to sign three players from Barcelona, two of whom are forwards.

On top of the Gabonese speedy striker, Memphis Depay is claimed to be another option even though he only signed for the Spanish outfit a year ago.

So far there has been no decision made by Tuchel's side as to whether they will make a move.

The closest they are to completing a deal for is the third player, midfielder Frenkie de Jong, the Blues are in talks with the Dutchman.

Should the Blues opt to sign another attacker, it would see Batshuayi fall even further down the pecking order than he already is.

Despite earning some minutes to impress in pre-season, Batshuayi evidently did not do enough to earn himself a place in Tuchel's plans for the upcoming season.

As reported by Sky Sports, Wolves are interested in signing the 28-year-old a season-long loan from Chelsea.

They are looking to find a quick fix up after their lead talisman Raul Jimenez suffered an injury in pre-season.

The Wanderers are currently looking at multiple targets, but Batshuayi is on that list.

It has been difficult for him at Chelsea, he has never managed to nail down a starting spot in the side.

Although he has had some special moments, such as the late winner against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, he has not hit the heights he would of hoped.

Multiple loan moves have seen him show flashes of good form, but inconsistency has ultimately cost him, and it seems inevitable that when his contract expires in 2023 he will be leaving the Blues for good.
