Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi would be a great loan signing for Newcastle

Belgium's forward Michy Batshuayi eyes the ball during the Russia 2018 World Cup Group G football match between England and Belgium at the Kaliningrad Stadium in Kaliningrad on June 28,...

Newcastle United should consider making a loan move for the Chelsea hitman this summer.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez looks on during the Premier League match between Manchester United and Burnley at Old Trafford on December 26, 2017 in Manchester, England.

Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez will be desperate to bolster his attacking options at St James' Park this summer, but with limited funds available to him, he will have to be extremely thrifty in his player recruitment.

With this in mind, the Magpies should consider a loan move for Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi, with the Belgian's future at Stamford Bridge uncertain to say the very least.

Michy Batshuayi of Chelsea looks on during The Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round match between Chelsea and Newcastle on January 28, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

The 24-year-old joined the Blues from Marseille in the summer of 2016, but has desperately failed to establish himself in west London, although it could be argued that he hasn't been given a fair chance to showcase his talents, with just four Premier League starts to his name.

Every Love Island contestant if they were an England player - World Cup!

He did enjoy a brief renaissance whilst on loan with Borussia Dortmund during the second half of last season, however, scoring nine goals in 14 appearances for the German side.

In fact, Batshuayi actually scored 21 goals in 40 appearances in all competitions for both Dortmund and Chelsea last season - a decent return for someone who supposedly 'struggled' for form.

Michy Batshuayi of Chelsea arrives during the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Chelsea at Selhurst Park on October 14, 2017 in London, England.

The Belgium international has looked very sharp for his country during the World Cup in Russia this summer, and he has proven that he still possesses enough quality to cut it at the very highest level.

Batshuayi has pace in abundance, and his direct style of play would undoubtedly offer Rafa something totally different in the final third to what he currently has at his disposal.

The 24-year-old seems to be on the verge of having a breakout season, and if Newcastle manage to bring him to St James' Park on loan this summer, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for the Toon.
