West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea in the summer transfer window, according to Football Insider.

It has been reported that West Brom – who will play in the Premier League next season after winning automatic promotion from the Championship – have made an approach to sign the Belgium international striker.

The report has claimed that the Baggies have made contact with the Blues about signing the 26-year-old on a season-long loan deal.

It has been claimed that Chelsea are happy to let the former Marseille striker leave this summer.

Good move for Michy Batshuayi?

Batshuayi has failed to make a huge impact at Chelsea and has not really been a success in the Premier League.

However, there is no doubt that the 26-year-old is hugely talented and can make an impact at West Brom if he gets a run of games.

It is smart of West Brom to want a season-loan deal for Batshuayi, described as ‘a powerful, fast striker’ on Chelsea’s official website.

If the loan deal does not work out, then West Brom would not have wasted a sizeable transfer fee.

The Baggies will be determined to finish above the Premier League bottom three next season.
