Roma interested in Chelsea player who is expected to leave this month, claims report

Chelsea are not only looking at potential new players during this transfer window, they could also face the prospect of losing a few.

Roma are considering making a move for striker Michy Batshuayi during this window, according to Calciomercato.

They claim that Batshuayi is expected to be leaving Chelsea this month, after playing a bit part role at the club firmly behind the main striker Tammy Abraham.

Batshuayi is wanted by a number of other clubs and as the report points out, Roma will face competition for his signature from others, should Chelsea allow him to leave.

It is thought that Frank Lampard will only allow a player to leave this window if he has a suitable replacement coming in. And with Olivier Giroud also likely to leave this month, you would assume that for Batshuayi to go as well, they will need at least one new striker to come in.
