Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi could leave the Premier League champions on loan this summer, with West Ham a potential destination according to reports from ESPN.
The Belgium international has made only one league start for the Blues since his £33million switch from Marseille last year, but has played a crucial role in the latter etchings of the season for Antonio Conte’s side. The Belgian striker famously scored the goal at West Brom to win Chelsea the title and has since scored three times in two games – including a last-gasp brace at Sunderland this past weekend.
The 23-year-old is not the only man linked with a move to the London Stadium however, as Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge – who has struggled for form and playing time under Jurgen Klopp this season – has also been aligned with a move to the Hammers this coming transfer window.
Sturridge, who is valued by Transfermarkt at £18.7million, has endured a difficult season plagued by injury problems and has come under heavy criticism from his own fans for failing to find the sort of form he produced alongside Luis Suarez in 2013/14.
The Hammers appear desperate to find a reliable forward after the failed signings of Simeone Zaza and Jonathan Calleri last summer. But, West Ham fans, who would you rather have leading the line next season? Let us know by voting below…
