Forgotten Chelsea man Michy Batshuayi could be on his way to newly promoted Premier League side Leeds United, according to The Athletic’s Phil Hay.

He said on The Phil Hay Show: “One who has been mentioned and is definitely of interest is Michy Batshuayi down at Chelsea, who Bielsa knows from Marseille. He was a youngster at Marseille when Bielsa was manager there.

“So [Bielsa] knows a lot about his game, knows the ins and outs of it. He wouldn’t be somebody that would have to adapt massively to what Bielsa does.

“Despite the fact it has never really happened for him at Chelsea, he is at a good and prime age at 26.”
