Leeds and Everton among clubs offer an escape route for Chelsea outcasts

TeamTalk claim Leeds and Everton are among a list of Premier League clubs ready to offer Chelsea outsider Michy Batshuayi a chance at redemption this summer. Wolves, Southampton and Brighton are also interested.

Batshuayi, 28, is currently impressing on his fifth loan from Chelsea – at Turkish club Besiktas, where he has scored 14 goals in 28 SuperLig games. He has also played for Valencia, Dortmund and Palace.

The latter he was loaned out twice. In Chelsea colors, Batshuayi has scored 25 goals in 77 games – but the £90,000-a-week (Spotrac) the striker is about to enter the last 12 months of his contract. Chelsea want a sale.

Indeed they are willing to take a big loss for the £33million (Guardian) fee spent to sign him from Marseille in 2016. Leeds, Everton, Southampton, Wolves and Brighton are all interested – as are Besiktas, who want him permanently.

Which club is best for Batshuayi ahead of the summer window?

Everton could sell Dom Calvert-Lewin. He needs to be replaced. Southampton may not keep Chelsea-owned Armando Broja. Wolves have Raul Jimenez, Leeds have Patrick Bamford and Brighton have Neal Maupay.

Besiktas will want to keep him given his league form but won’t boast of the financial strength of the Premier League quintet. Everton and Southampton need a striker the most but the other three want competition at the top.

A chance to play under Chelsea legend Lampard will be enticing if he is assured he will be the first choice. He will also have seen Broja’s form at Southampton and that could prove tempting.
