Chelsea ace targeted by Spanish side

The club are not ruling out anything 

Michy Batshuayi joined Chelsea for a reported fee of €40 million, signing a 5 year contract in 2016 and was the first signing of Antonio Conte. Despite boasting a decent strike rate of 19 goals in 53 appearances, he found regular starts hard to come by in England.

The Belgium International was behind Diego Costa in the pecking order during his debut season. Despite coming as a substitute most of the time, the striker often showed glimpses of his potential talent.

Alvaro Morata was signed by the Blues last summer to replace the Spanish striker, who returned to his former club Atletico Madrid. His bright start in the Premier League kept the Belgian out from the starting line up again.

With Antonio Conte reluctant to put his faith in the striker, and with Olivier Giroud snapped up from Arsenal, he was allowed to join Borussia Dortmund on loan for the rest of the season in January transfer window.

The 24 year old made an instant impact for the German Club, scoring 7 goals in 10 appearances. But he injured his ankle in the 2-0 Bundesliga loss to Schalke on April 15 and missed the remainder of 2017-18 campaign.

He returned to full fitness ahead of the World Cup and currently in Russia, with Belgium qualifying for the semi-finals. They will face France on 10th July.

But Batshuayi’s future is still uncertain and it remains to be seen what Premier League giants have planned for him. Many clubs are monitoring his situation and could make a move if he leaves.

Sevilla are among those, with the Liga club’s sporting director, Joaquin Caparros, telling reporters as quoted by Goal at the unveiling of Tomas Vaclik: “For Sevilla, few footballers are out of reach.

“It is true some of them could be economically impossible, but other ways can be found to sign him.

“Everything is open, and we can’t say no because then maybe they can come and we can get them. Absolutely nothing is discarded.”
