Several reports have claimed that Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi could be used as a makeweight in a deal for Monaco’s Thomas Lemar once the transfer window reopens.
Some reports say the Belgian could be offered on loan to the Ligue 1 club as the Blues look to beat Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United to the signing of Lemar.
Batshuayi was in good form and has scored some important goals for Chelsea before he had an injury that has now stalled his return to the Chelsea team.
Some reports claim Charly Musonda could also be used as a bait in the deal.
Many Chelsea fans have shared their opinions about the report and fans seem to be on different pages.
You cannot have only one out and out forward for half a season no matter how little Michy is rated by Conte

Let it happen we need that Lemar

With only Morata as the other striker option, this would make little sense.

If Batshuayi isn't trusted by Conte, then they should break the bank for Aubameyang #CFC

@mbatshuayi I hope you don't go to Monaco. You are my favorite Chelsea Player. Way better than Lemar in my books🙏
