West Brom fans react to reported interest in Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi

Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi is reportedly attracting interest from West Brom – and some of their fans on Twitter have responded by claiming they would love to see him join them at the Hawthorns.

The Express and Star reports that West Brom are keen to take the 26-year-old on loan for the 2020/21 Premier League season.

West Brom are looking to strengthen their squad ahead of the new campaign and they are now back in the Premier League after achieving automatic promotion last year from the Championship.


Batshuayi managed six goals in 24 first-team games last season for the Blues, but was third-choice in the pecking order for the central attacking position behind Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud.

He’s a decent finisher in and around the box that has good movement, but has been unable to hold down a position during four years at the club and it’s understandable that he’s being linked with a move away.

Timo Werner’s arrival with the Blues is expected to take the frontline up another level in an attempt to try bridge the gap to Liverpool and Manchester City, who have been the outstanding pair in the Premier League in the past few seasons.

A selection of West Brom fans on social media are delighted with links to Batshuayi on loan and believe he’s someone that could be very effective for them.
