Leeds United Eye End of Season Transfer For Batshuayi


Despite limited playing time at Fenerbahce this season, Michy Batshuayi has reportedly caught the eye of ambitious English Championship side Leeds United according to Aksam.

The 30-year-old Belgian striker is set to be out of contract at the end of the season, making him a potential loan target for Leeds as they push for promotion back to the Premier League.

Batshuayi is out of contract at the end of the season but Fenerbahce do have the option to extend by an additional year.

If Fenerbahce do extend this deal they will demand a transfer fee, if not he will be a free agent.

While overshadowed by star player Edin Dzeko this season, Batshuayi still managed a respectable return of 20 goals and 3 assists in 34 appearances for Fenerbahce. His goalscoring prowess could be a valuable asset for Leeds, particularly if they secure promotion.

Leeds are known for their attacking style of play, and Batshuayi’s experience and finishing ability could provide a significant boost to their firepower.

The potential loan deal could also be attractive to Fenerbahce, as it would free up space in their squad and potentially generate loan income.

However, competition for Batshuayi’s signature could arise from other clubs looking for a reliable goalscorer. Whether Leeds can secure his services will likely depend on their promotion success and their ability to offer him a regular starting role.

Fenerbahce are currently involved in a tight title race with rivals Galatasaray and are competing in the European Conference League where they are currently in the Round of 16.
