Wolves transfer news: Wolves eyeing Michy Batshuayi loan move

Wolves are reportedly interested in signing Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea.

According to Sky Sports News, Wanderers are seeking to cover the injury to Raul Jimenez and loan exit of Fabio Silva by moving for the Belgium international.

Batshuayi has been with Chelsea since 2016 when he joined from Marseille for a reported £33 million.

The star has made just 77 appearances in that time, scoring 25 goals.

He’s had a number of loan spells since arriving at Stamford Bridge, including to Valencia, Borussia Dortmund and Crystal Palace.

The ace has one year left on his contract with Chelsea.

Wolves are crying out for a new centre-forward addition, with Bruno Lage having no central strikers available to him at the moment.

Patrick Cutrone and Leo Bonatini remain Wolves players, but it is thought they are not in the manager’s plans.

Against Leeds United this weekend, it is likely that one of Daniel Podence, Hwang Hee-chan, Morgan Gibbs-White or Pedro Neto will play through the middle.

Ideally, Wolves will sign a new striker in the coming days and they will get a full week of training under their belt before the next game against Fulham.

The club have also been linked with South Korea international Hwang Ui-jo.

Michy Batshuayi might be good loan addition for Wolves after decent season with Besiktas

This is a link that is perhaps slightly more exciting than others in recent days. And it is one that cropped up earlier this year, with TEAMtalk claiming there was interest from Wanderers.

It is worth looking at Batshuayi’s form last season. For Besiktas he scored 14 goals in 33 Super Lig appearances, which is not a bad return.

Ultimately, Batshuayi, 28, does have Premier League experience and might relish another loan move to a Premier League club.
