Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi would be keen on a move to West Ham United this summer if the opportunity arose, according to a renowned club insider at The West Ham Way.
The Hammers have been in the market for a new high-profile centre forward for the last 12 months and are believed to have made an attempt to sign the Belgium international during his time at Marseille.
However, Chelsea won the race for the striker’s signature last summer – but have relegated Batshuayi to a fringe role under Diego Costa.
With doubts over Andy Carroll’s future at the London Stadium, West Ham will surely be in the market for a new centre forward once more at the end of the current campaign.
If Slaven Bilic’s men could convince Batshuayi to move across London to Chelsea’s Premier League rivals, it could be quite the coup for the Irons.
The insider, who has made a number of correction revelations about West Ham in the past, has stated that the possibility for a deal between the clubs was there.
“Bathsuayi (sic) of Chelsea is apparently very unhappy with the amount of football he has got this year and would like to move,” he stated on The West Ham Way.
“A loan or even a permanent deal could be on the cards. It is said that he would be keen on a move to us and we have been long term admirers.”
