Michy Batshuayi is yet to feature for Chelsea this season, and rumours claim that he’s keen on a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Since signing for the club in 2016, Batshuayi is yet to cement a place in the Chelsea team, and has been on loan with three different clubs.

Italian Serie A side Roma are keen on taking Batshuayi away from the west London club in the coming weeks, but Belgian outfit HLN claims that Lampard will not allow the misfiring forward to leave this summer, as he needs his three attacking options.

Speaking in his press conference today, Lampard has confirmed that he will like to keep Batshuayi and his other two strikers Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham.

Lampard said: “The future is Michy is here as one of our strikers. We know we have three strikers but there will be opportunities for him.

“With Michy it’s important he trains at the top, top level every day, gets himself absolutely fit to play the way I want my strikers to play, which is constant movement on and off the ball and to try and score goals.

“But he’s very much our player and competing with Tammy and Oli for that space.”
