Leeds: Whites interested in Michy Batshuayi -Leeds United News

Leeds United are interested in a summer move for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, according to Marca.

The Lowdown: Impressive Besiktas loan

Batshuayi was described as ‘unstoppable’ back in 2017 by Pat Nevin, and he lived up to those comments last season. The 28-year-old spent the 2021/22 campaign in Turkey with Besiktas, netting 14 league goals and registering five assists in 33 games.

The Belgium international duly took his senior career goal tally for club and country to 161, and with him now entering the final 12 months of his Stamford Bridge contract, it looks as if the Whites are keen to take him to Elland Road.

The Latest: Leeds linked with Batshuayi

Spanish outlet Marca shared a Premier League transfer round-up on Wednesday evening, looking at all 20 top-flight clubs.

When it came to Leeds, they included Batshuayi in the ‘interested’ list alongside Marc Roca, who now looks set to become the club’s third summer signing.

The Verdict: Mystery striker?

Phil Hay claimed shortly after the Whites secured their top-flight status on the final day of 2021/22 that the club are looking to sign an unnamed Premier League striker.

Batshuayi could well prove to be that mystery target, and a transfer could be one which makes sense, especially given his contract situation in London.

Leeds fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 season?

The Chelsea marksman has netted 15 Premier League goals in 77 games and has come off the back of an impressive year in Turkey, so he could provide solid competition to Patrick Bamford. Also, with a Transfermarkt valuation of just £9m, this could be one to keep an eye on.
