Batshuayi is struggling for regular playing time at Stamford Bridge and this has led to rumors about his future from different quarters and with the opening of the January transfer window, he is likely to be on a move out of London.
The Belgian International has only started two premier league games this season having been confined to roles in cup competitions and as a substitute.
However, despite the lack of opportunities the 24-year has managed to score seven goals in 19 appearances in all competition as Chelsea Manager, Antonio Conte only sees the former Marseille forward as a back-up to main striker, Alvaro Morata.
The Blues are keen on bringing in a new striker this month as a result of Morata’s wastefulness in front of goal and the signing of another top-class striker might further reduce Batshuayi’s minimal chances.
The situation at Stamford Bridge has alerted Sevilla, who are equally looking at strengthening their attacking rank after bringing in a new manager, Vincenzo Montella.
The loan deal is likely to interest Batshuayi as that might guarantee a regular game time in another top-tier European league which might increase his chances of making Belgium’s world cup squad for Russia 2018.
