Sevilla keen on loan deal for Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi

Antonio Conte has insisted he is "very happy" with Michy Batshuayi amid speculation the striker could leave Chelsea in January.

Batshuayi snubbed West Ham for Chelsea in 2016 after the Hammers had a £30million bid accepted by Marseille. Just 20 league appearances in his first season, and 11 at the halfway point of this campaign, suggests that Blues manager Antonio Conte hasn't really put his faith in the Belgian.

As per Goal, Conte wants to sign a striker this month before Batshauyi can be loaned out.

And Carroll himself has been linked with a shock move to Stamford Bridge.

The 24-year-old has started only three Premier League matches in two-and-a-half seasons at Stamford Bridge, while the Blues reportedly are keen on a deal for West Ham United's Andy Carroll, according to reports in England.

The £58 million arrival of Alvaro Morata in the summer hasn't exactly helped Batshuayi's cause at Stamford Bridge, with the Spaniard often favoured up front to the Belgian global, who has had to make do with playing second fiddle for his entire Chelsea career, so far, with Diego Costa hogging the main striker role, last season.

However, the reports agree that the move hinges on Chelsea bringing in someone to replace Batshuayi in the role of a back-up striker, to spell Morata in times of need or poor form.

Batshuayi is concerned that a lack of game time could impact on his chances of being involved in the Belgian national squad for this summer's upcoming World Cup in Russian Federation.
