Michy Batshuayi has found goals hard to come by at his loan club, Valencia whom he joined during the summer.

Batshuayi has scored just one goal in 15 La Liga games so far this season and Valencia boss Marcelino is losing patience with the 24-year-old.

Valencia suffered a shock Copa del Rey defeat to Sporting Gijon, and Batshuayi was taken off after 45 minutes in that game.

Marcelino unleashed his frustration after the 2-1 defeat in which his team found the net just once despite having 17 shots, and the manager revealed that he might have lost his patience with Batshuayi.

“We need signings up front,” he said after the game.

“In some cases our patience has run out.”

Marcelino has previously revealed his disappointment with Batshuayi and even suggested that his loan deal could be cut short.

“At the right time we will analyse the final situation and we will decide [what to do with Batshuayi],” Marcelino told reporters in December.

“There is a transfer [clause], I do not know what the situation is contractually.

“But for all parties who want to leave, we will look for what is best for Valencia and thus the appropriate decisions will be made.”

Batshuayi had a good loan spell during his time at German side Borussia Dortmund, and he isn’t the only Chelsea striker struggling for goals at the moment.

Morata has only managed nine goals in 26 appearances for Chelsea this season and he has looked short of confidence this term.

Chelsea seem to have given up hope on the Spain international and the Blues are looking to sign a new striker.

Morata has been reportedly linked with a move to Sevilla, and Sevilla director of football Joaquin Caparros has confirmed that the club are interested in signing the Chelsea striker.

“We are interested in Morata but it is a very, very complicated operation,” Caparros said.

“The player may want to come here over other options but the negotiations with Chelsea will be very complicated.”
