Borussia Dortmund may engage Batsuayi

Reports in London suggests that Bundesliga side; Borussia Dortmund will try to sign Michy Batshuayi on a permanent offer in the summer.

The Belgian international’s performance in his first 2 games has been impressive, recording 2 goals and an assist in the game against Cologne and Hamburg.
Batshuayi, popularly known as the “Bat Man” on Social Media was loaned to Dortmund in a seemingly “triangulated” transfer style between Dortmund, Arsenal and Chelsea which saw Pierre-Emerick  Aubemayang transfer to Arsenal, leaving space for Oliver Giroud to fill the shoes of Batshuayi at Chelsea.

The 24 year old Dortmund striker will be aiming to have a fantastic 6 month at the BVB team as it will improve his rating ahead of the 2018 Russia World Cup. Chelsea signed Batshuayi from Marseille in July 2016 for £33m. He has since netted 19 goals in 53 appearances in all competitions for the west London side. He scored Chelsea’s premier league title winning goal against West Brom in May 2017.

The former Marseille Striker was out of favour from Chelsea’s Antonio Conte as he prefers to use a ‘false nine’ in Eden Hazard than Michy when Morata is unavailable.
Dortmund CEO was reported to have said that although the BVB contract to loan the Belgian forward from Chelsea didn’t include a buy option. Batshuayi, who was Chelsea’s substitute striker for Diego Costa and Morata is being picked as a direct replacement for Aubemayang in Dortmund.
