Michy Batshuayi is set for crunch talks with Chelsea in the coming days according to reports.
which say he wants assurances over his future after struggling to make enough first team starts in his first season.
Diego Costa has already been told he has no future at the club by Antonio Conte and is expected to be replaced Romelu Lukaku.
Batshuayi is said to be happy to compete with Lukaku for a first team place, but wants assurances that Conte won’t leave him locked out of the team for another season.
A lack of first-team opportunities means he could be dropped by his national team ahead of the World Cup.
West Ham are willing to break the bank to sign Batshuayi permanently.
but Chelsea are said to be only willing to consider a season loan deal instead.
Chelsea are insisting they won’t conclude any deal for Batshuayi until they find a replacement for Costa.
so this is another deal that has stalled at the moment.
