Turkish football giants Besiktas are no longer interested in a move for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, according to Turkish media outlet Turkish Football.
Batshuayi is yet to feature in any of Chelsea’s three games this season but impressed when he played for Chelsea’s U23 against Liverpool U23.
Besiktas reportedly dropped their interest in signing Batshuayi because the striker and Chelsea boss Frank Lampard were not keen on the deal. Batshuayi intends to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place.
Even though Batshuayi isn’t interested in leaving Chelsea, he might push to leave the club in January if he fails to get opportunities.
Batshuayi scored twice against Liverpool U23s and Lampard revealed on Friday that he was impressed with Batshuayi.
“I thought it was a good performance in terms of Michy got the fitness work he needed out of the game,” said Lampard.
“He scored two good goals, two very good finishes, I thought he worked hard, and that’s exactly what the game was there for, for him. So good. Very good for him.
“As I’ve said before here and as I’ve said on the training pitch, we need Michy, we need the competition up front with the three strikers we have.
“As I said before, if we’d been more clinical in front of goal in these last three games I think we’d have had three wins, including the Super Cup.
“Because we’ve been the better team in big parts of those games.
“So the competition is there, that’s the challenge us, for the strikers, it’s not just them, we can score from different areas of the pitch, but of course you look to your strikers in those moments.
“I’ve got no problems with them, their attitudes, how they are training, the competition is good, someone needs to come to the front, hopefully.”
