La Liga side Sevilla have made Chelsea unsettled striker Michy Batshuayi their top target as new manager Vincenzo Montella wants to bolster his squad with a further striker.

It is understood the Premier League champions will let the Belgian leave the club on loan if Edin Dzeko moves to Stamford Bridge in the January transfer window, as manager Antonio Conte confirmed speaking at a press conference recently.

Anyway, with less then week left to go before Deadline Day and Edin Dzeko still in Italy, Batshuayi remaining at Stamford Bridge could be the most likely outcome.

Sevilla are confident of securing a loan move for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.

The Belgian striker has made only two Premier League starts this season with most of his appearances coming in the cup competitions or off the bench.

Blues boss Antonio Conte would likely be open to letting his forward leave this month, but only with a new signing to replace him, so to avoid leaving himself short of attacking options in the second half of the campaign.

Both clubs are in talks over a loan deal for the former Olympique Marseille forward and Chelsea are ready to give it the green light dependent on them bringing in their own forward reinforcements.

Batshuayi has still managed to score seven goals in 19 appearances in all competitions for Chelsea, but he is unlikely to become a regular starter in the West London side under Conte.

The Belgium international is eager to get some playing time so to be in contention for a place in Belgium squad for Russia 2018 World Cup.

Goal.com reports Sevilla are keen to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi on loan for the rest of the season.

World Cup Russia 2018 is getting closer and Batshuayi would like to be included in the Belgium squad by coach Roberto Martinez, so he is not keen to miss other minutes in order to prepare for the competition and, meanwhile, to improve his playing and form.

Chelsea scout Piet De Visser says the Blues are planning to send Charly Musonda back to Real Betis on loan next season.

The youngster made an impact in Spain in the last campaign but Chelsea want him to improve even more before including him in their first team squad:

“We decided to give him another campaign over there where he had a great performance – then you are ready to return.

“”Charly has made an excellent choice [to go to Betis]. When we took him he was very frail. We even feared that he was too little athlete despite his talent to make it in the sport.

““He is a player for a top team and Chelsea will protect his talent. An option to buy him could be too expensive for us and will be impossible to pay it. These clubs buy and invest in talented players.”
