According to a report in the Telegraph, Chelsea are still considering selling Michy Batshuayi this summer - despite his goalscoring heroics recently.

Batshuayi netted the title clinching goal, when he slid in to prod home against West Bromwich Albion last week.

And the Belgian international backed up that display by scoring in his last Chelsea appearance against Watford.

There were suggestions that Batshuayi’s showings would have confirmed his place at Stamford Bridge next season.

Indeed, West Ham United fans appeared to believe that their chance of signing Batshuayi had ended (HITC).

However, the Telegraph report that Antonio Conte has still not made his mind up over the striker.

Batshuayi has barely featured for Chelsea this term, with most his appearances coming as a substitute.

And there are still doubts over whether he could be a regular starter for the Blues.

As a result, Chelsea are said to be considering offloading Batshuayi - offering hope to a list of potential suitors, including West Ham.

Monaco are the latest side to be linked with Batshuayi, with the Telegraph suggesting that he could be used as part of a swap deal for Benjamin Mendy or Thomas Lemar.
