Conte confident Batshuayi will make Chelsea impact

Antonio Conte firmly believes new Chelsea signing Michy Batshuayi will be a major positive for the club in his debut season.

New manager Conte was unveiled to the media on Thursday and was asked about what he expected from Belgian striker Batshuayi, who joined the West London club from Marseille for £33million.

"Absolutely I think Michy can make an impact because he is a young player but very strong, with good technique," said the Italian.

"He uses two feet. He is a great talent. I am very happy that Batshuayi is with us and I know the club bought a great player for the present and the future.

"I prefer to speak with my club and we will take the decision on players who adapt to our idea of football - not to take the champions only because they are the champions, but players who adapt to our philosophy."
