West Ham Ready To Swoop For Estranged Blues Star

Chelsea Probable Lineup vs Peterborough

 

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi could be set for a switch to West Ham during the January transfer window.

The 23-year-old striker has had a torrid start to life at the Stamford Bridge and has barely started a game for the Blues since his arrival from Marseille during the summer.

However, West Ham who were actually beaten to the Belgian’s signature has now rekindled their interest following his lack of chances with the Blues.

Although, Batshuayi has reportedly held talks with the hierarchy at Stamford Bridge about his future with the club. The 23-year-old may continue to find life difficult at Chelsea due to Diego Costa’s electric form.
