Wolves: Lage eyeing Michy Batshuayi summer swoop

Wolverhampton Wanderers are considering a summer swoop for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.

What’s the word?

That’s according to the latest claims from TEAMtalk, who report that Lage’s side are one of a few clubs looking to bring the Belgium international back to the Premier League.

The 28-year-old’s contract expires this summer and after what has been a fairly unprosperous spell at the London club, having completed five loan spells since signing in 2016, the club are ready to cut the Belgium striker loose in order to receive a fee.

Do you want to see Batshuayi at Wolves?

No way!

No way!

Yes please!

Yes please!

According to the report, Batshuayi has “no fewer than five Premier League sides” interested in giving him a platform to prove Chelsea wrong.

The teams in question are Wolves, Everton, Southampton, Brighton and Leeds United.

A proven scorer

Having bagged 142 goals throughout the course of his senior career, Batshuayi has proven himself as a “class” finisher with his prowess in front of goal seeing him dubbed a “hero” by Football Vlogger George Benson on Twitter.

Batshuayi has seized his opportunity for regular minutes at loan club Besiktas, having bagged 14 goals in 28 league appearances. His five assists have also highlighted the creative side of his game.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

With a current market value of £9m and his contract running down, Chelsea would surely accept a fee around this number, which presents an emphatic opportunity for a striker who is proven on the international stage – having netted 23 goals in 41 appearances for the Belgium national team.

We can excuse his lacklustre second loan spell at Crystal Palace last season and put it down to the Eagles’ lack of ambition up top. Though, in the context of systems, Wolves’ 3-4-3 set-up could give the Old Gold side the edge, with the Chelsea loanee bagging two goals for Besiktas against Alanyaspor in early April as a centre-forward in a 3-4-3 formation.

The two wide men in this system could benefit Batshuayi’s goal-threat to no end.

With a point to prove against a club that failed to give him a chance and his expiry fast approaching, Lage could bag his side a bargain this summer. Considering his knack for scoring goals, he’s sure to excite the Molineux faithful.
