Despite not wanted by Frank Lampard at Chelsea following the arrival of Timo Werner, Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi is set to be offered a new contract by the Blues.

According to The Sun, the 26 year old striker is to be offered an extension to avoid him walking away for nothing next summer.

No clubs who can afford Batshuayi have shown an interest in this window, so Chelsea hope by giving him a further year he can go out and increase his value.

Batshuayi reportedly earns around £100,000 weekly and the report claims the terms on the new contract will see Batshuayi get a £15,000 rise.

Any club interested on a loan deal for Batshuayi will be asked to pay for most of his salary.

The news has put Crystal Palace, West Brom and Newcastle on alert. They could not afford to buy him but now they could loan him.
