Michy Batshuayi continues to live on the fringes of the Chelsea first-team squad, making fairly regular substitute appearances and the odd start in low-profile cup games — with varying degrees of success. It’s certainly not an ideal situation for him or for the club, with Michy’s development thus stalling rather drastically and Conte saddled with a striker whom he can’t trust or use to his fullest extent.

A loan move has been mooted as a good solution for all parties involved, and the latest in that regard is that Michy could indeed have at least one potential destination, with Sevilla looking to add him for the rest of the season, as per reports from Goal.com and HLN journalist Kristof Terreur.

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. So far, it’s been rather quiet on that front, unless we’re ready to believe nonsense like Andy Carroll or Christian Benteke or Richmond Boakye.

Then again, stranger things have happened...
