Chelsea striker Batshuayi ‘likely’ to leave, Turkish giants rival West Ham to clinch deal

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi is likely to be able to leave this summer according to the Telegraph.

Per the source, the 22-year-old could end up being loaned out if a replacement is found.

The report claims that West Ham are keen on the young striker despite also being in the race for Chicharito.

The Hammers could however, face competition from Fenerbahce who have also joined the race.

A source close to the club revealed to Turkish-Football that they have made an enquiry for Batshuayi.

Fenerbahce are keen on signing the forward on a loan deal.

The club are under the watch of Financial Fair Play (FFP), making loan deals a more attractive opposition this summer.

The Yellow Canaries have made strengthening their forward line a priority.

Fenerbahce sold Emmanuel Emenike to Olympiakos and Moussa Sow has returned to his parents club after his loan deal finished.

The Istanbul giants currently only have Robin van Persie and Fernandao available heading into the pre-season.

Fenerbahce would be able to make Batshuayi assurances of first team and European competition football next season if he were to make the move.

Chelsea signed Batshuayi for £33 million (BBC) just last summer but he struggled for regular first-team football last season playing just 235 minutes of Premier League football.
