Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi wanted by Trabzonspor

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi is wanted by Trabzonspor.

Milliyet says Trabzonspor are keen on Batshuayi, 27, and are seeking a season-long loan deal.

Chelsea have reportedly given the go-ahead for a move to happen, with Thomas Tuchel keen to upgrade his striking options.

The Blues allowed Olivier Giroud to move to AC Milan on a permanent basis earlier this month.

Roman Abramovich is in the process of raising funds with the club eyeing a £135million move for Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland.

Batshuayi joined Chelsea in 2016 but has only made 77 appearances for the club.

He has been overlooked by the likes of Antonio Conte, Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard, with Tuchel now also not interested in keeping the Belgian around since his return from a loan spell at Crystal Palace.
