AS Roma set to sign Batshuayi on loan.

AS Roma is considering a possibility of a loan offer for the Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi, according to a claim made by the Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

It is believed that Man United’s Alexis Sanchez is actually the primary target for the Gialorossi.

However, Roma are struggling to secure a deal for the Chilean due to his £505,000-a-week wages. Hence, the Italians might turn their attention to Chelsea man as a cheaper alternative instead.

Batshuayi has returned to the Blues after two loan spell from the last season – first, at Valencia, and, in the second half of the season, at Crystal Palace.

Lampard seemingly regards Michy as his 3rd player in the striker position currently, despite some impressive performances during the pre-season.

On Sunday against United, Batshuayi didn’t feature in the matchday squad at all.
