Michy Batshuayi makes final decision about his Chelsea FC future – report
Michy Batshuayi wants to stay and earn a place in Frank Lampard's Chelsea FC team, say reports
Michy Batshuayi has decided to stay at Chelsea FC and fight for a place in Frank Lampard’s first team this season, according to reports in the British media.
The Evening Standard is reporting that the 25-year-old wants to stay at Stamford Bridge and try to earn a spot in Lampard’s team this season despite having been linked with a move away.
Batshuayi has already had loan spells at Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace since his move to Stamford Bridge back in 2016, but it seems that he is now ready to try and hold down a spot in west London.
Despite the Premier League transfer window having already closed, European clubs are able to sign players from England until the start of next month.
The same article says that Batshuayi is keen to play regularly this season in order to try and earn a spot in the Belgium squad for next summer’s Euro 2020 tournament.
Batshuayi is yet to feature for Chelsea FC’s first team this season and it remains to be seen whether he will be able to break back into the squad under Lampard this term.
Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are currently preparing for their Premier League trip to Norwich City on Saturday lunchtime as they target their first win of the season under Lampard.
