Chelsea hero Michy Batshuayi didn’t have the first season he expected to enjoy at Stamford Bridge, but he did prove to be very effective in the end.
It was the Belgians kick that sealed the deal for the Blues in the title race against West Brom, and he came on to add two more goals in their 5-1 routing of Sunderland on the last day of the campaign.
Batshuayi has emerged as a target for the likes of West Ham and the newly-promoted Newcastle. And according to what he told Belgian outlet Het Nieuwsblad before the FA Cup final against Arsenal, as cited by Chronicle Live, he isn’t averse to going elsewhere on loan next season.
“Honestly, I’m not trying to think too much [about my future],” the forward declared ahead of Chelsea’s FA Cup final loss to Arsenal.
“We still have a match and I’m trying 200 per cent. After that it will up to the board and the coach to make a decision.
“I’m a player and I’ll go wherever Chelsea sends me.”
He could land a bigger role in Antonio Conte’s squad, however. Spain hitman Diego Costa could be on the move in the summer, and that might see him take the fore in the Chelsea attack next term.
Conte, though, is keen to buy another striker, with Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku thought to be his main targets.
