Batshuayi has been used as an impact substitute by manager Antonio Conte but is surely growing increasing frustrated at his lack of opportunities to play from the start in the Premier League.
The latest report has stated that Milan are in the market for a new striker and have eyed the 23-year-old situation in the Premier League as a potential opportunity.
