Michy Batshuayi is set to leave Chelsea on loan in January, according to reports.

The Belgian striker barely featured under Antonio Conte last season and while he has been handed more playing time this term, he is still behind Alvaro Morata in the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

According to The Sun, Conte has informed Batshuayi that he can join another club on a temporary deal for the remainder of the campaign.

The report also claims that the Chelsea manager will target a replacement signing so he is not left short of options in attack.

Batshuayi was signed for £33 million from Marseille last year but he has failed to make an impact so far.

The 24-year-old had been sidelined since the end of October due to a foot injury but made his return as a late substitute earlier this week in Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Batshuayi was then given a full game to impress the following day and he managed to score twice for Chelsea’s Under-21s in a 4-0 victory over MK Dons in the Checkatrade Trophy.
