West Ham to make loan bid for Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi - sources

West Ham are lining up a loan move for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi this summer as they look to bolster their attacking options, sources close to the Hammers have told ESPN FC.

West Ham have held a long-term interest in Batshuayi and tried to sign the Belgium international prior to his move to Chelsea from Marseille last summer.

The 23-year-old has struggled for regular first-team football at Chelsea, making just one start in the Premier League this season with another 19 appearances off the bench.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Chelsea are reluctant to sell Batshuayi, but could be open to the idea of loaning him out if he finds himself down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge.

Michy Batshuayi has struggled for first-team football at Chelsea.

A number of clubs are monitoring his situation, but West Ham are hoping to steal a march on their rivals by setting up a loan deal for the striker.

West Ham have made striking reinforcements one of their main priorities this summer as they have struggled for goals this season.

Batshuayi has impressed in recent weeks, scoring the goal which secured Chelsea the Premier League title against West Bromwich Albion, while he netted in his start against Watford and followed that up with a double in Sunday's final game of the season against Sunderland.

But he may struggle to be a regular starter for Chelsea next season with the club linked with summer moves for Everton's Romelu Lukaku and Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata.
