Chelsea ready to sell this out-of-favour first team attacker this month

Chelsea are ready to allow Michy Batshuayi leave them on loan this month.

The Belgian has been out of favor in Antonio Conte’s team and has been limited to just substitute appearances this season.

Times when their club record signing Alvaro Morata has been unfit this season, Conte has played  Eden Hazard as a false nine instead of giving Batshuayi a chance.

According to Mail Sport, the Blues are looking to sign another attacker this month, but Batshuayi has to make way first.

Spanish giants Sevilla are currently his most serious suitors as they look to finish inside the Spanish top four again this season.

Batshuayi have made 48 appearances for the Blues since joining in the summer of 2016, however, over 50% of those appearances have come as substitute appearances.

He was the second choice behind Diego Costa in his first season, and the arrival of Alvaro Morata last summer has pushed him further down the pecking order.

The Blues are looking for an attacker with Premier League experience to become the second choice for Morata.

They have reportedly decided to make a move for either of Christian Benteke or Andy Carroll.
