It’s been a cracking season for Chelsea in the Premier League and their fans here in the Tavern are pretty certain the Premier League title will be back at Stamford Bridge come the end of the campaign!
The Blues have led the way in the division all year and have looked reinvigorated under Antonio Conte, who looks to have won the league at his first attempt with the Blues.
But there’s one man in the squad who certainly hasn’t had the same amount of joy as his teammates in the first-team setup and that’s Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi, who has struggled for game-time for the entirety of the season.
Rated at a huge £21million by Transfermarkt, we haven’t seen enough from Batshuayi to really judge his performances this season. He’s scored only once in the Premier League having made 17 appearances, mainly from the substitutes bench.
But our Liverpool corner of the pub, which has been getting increasingly busy as the race for Champions League football hots up, has been calling for a new forward to add competition to their squad and think Batshuayi could be a perfect fit next season.
Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi have been pretty average this campaign and should the Reds either fork out or bring in Batshuayi on-loan, he could be the man to lead their title charge this season.
We saw during his time with Marseille that he’s a quick, strong striker with a real eye for goal but at 23-years-old, he needs to now be playing first-team football.
Whether Chelsea would sell to a potential title rival is yet to be seen but this is a move that could suit both clubs and most importantly, the development of the player.
Liverpool fans, would you like to see Batshuayi move to Anfield this summer? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
