West Ham United have been linked with a move for Chelsea pair Michy Batshuayi and Ruben Loftus-Cheek in Saturday’s media, with talk the Hammers could launch loan offers for the duo in January.
The Sun reports that Slaven Bilic’s men will revisit their interest in the Belgium international striker after reportedly missing out on the dynamic star over the course of the summer.

Batshuayi moved to Stamford Bridge from Marseille ahead of the 2016-17 Premier League season but has been firmly a back-up to Diego Costa.
The report suggests that West Ham are eager to offer the Belgian regular first-team football and that the London club feel the gifted attacker could solve their woes in the final third.
Meanwhile, The Express state that the Hammers are also interested in a temporary deal for Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
The homegrown starlet looks to have all the attributes to be a star in the Premier League but with extreme competition for places, the Englishman has had to bide his time under Antonio Conte.
