Posted by

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi is likely to leave the club on a permanent basis this summer, according to Football London.

Batshuayi was acquired by Chelsea in the summer of 2016, but he has struggled to make an impact at Stamford Bridge.

Whether it be under Antonio Conte, Maurizio Sarri or Frank Lampard, the Belgian has been unable to establish himself as a legitimate option for the Blues’ first-team.

As a result, loan moves to Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace have followed. Now 27-years-old, Batshuayi looks set to leave the club permanently.
