Report: West Ham could go back in for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi

According to a report from the Telegraph, West Ham could renew their interest in Chelsea hitman Michy Batshuayi this summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes will undoubtedly be keen to bolster his attacking ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

Albian Ajeti could be sold after a poor start to life at West Ham (Claret and Hugh). Whilst Moyes will be looking to provide more support for Sebastien Haller, with the Frenchman struggling when deployed as a lone striker.

The problem for the Hammers, however, is that funds will be tight because of the ongoing global health crisis.

So Moyes will have to be thrifty with his player recruitment.

And the Telegraph claims that West Ham could renew their interest in Chelsea front-man Michy Batshuayi. It is suggested that Frank Lampard could make the Belgian international available this summer to help raise funds.


The 26-year-old joined Chelsea from Marseille in the summer of 2016 for around £33 million (Guardian).

He has struggled to establish himself in west London, however.

Batshuayi has racked up just 25 goals and six assists in 77 games for the Blues (Transfermarkt).

It could be argued that he hasn’t been given enough opportunities to shine, however.

Who knows? The Belgian could be a success in the Premier League, if given regular game-time.

The 26-year-old Chelsea ace has been described as energetic, dynamic and someone who possesses blistering pace by the Telegraph.

And he might just be worth a punt for West Ham this summer. If Chelsea are willing to sell him for a reasonable fee of course.
