Premier League duo want Chelsea striker

Leeds United and Everton both want to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, who us currently on loan in Turkey with Beşiktaş.

He is under contract at Stamford Bridge until 2023, but a decision is likely to be made on the future this summer of the Belgian international who has never cemented a first-team place at Stamford Bridge.

His stay in the Super Lig is just the latest in a series of loan moves which have seen him have spells with Crystal Palace (twice), Borussia Dortmund and Valencia.

Despite his lack of involvement with his parent club, Batshuayi continues to enjoy a successful international career, scoring 23 times in 41 appearances for Belgian.

And his 14 goals and five assists for Beşiktaş this season is certainly a better return than Chelsea have got this season from their other Belgian international striker, Romelu Lukaku.

The Turkish side would like to retain him beyond this season, and clubs in Germany, Spain and Italy are all monitoring his situation, but a move to another Premier League club may be a more attractive proposition for him.
