Life at the Stamford Bridge for Belgium international Michy Batshuayi, hasn’t been all that rosy since his switch from Marseille this summer, and there are reports a West Ham loan for the 2nd half of the season might be on the cards.
In the eventuality that such happens, it’s pertinent Chelsea consider temporarily replacement options who would serve as backups for Diego Costa, and possibly challenge the Spaniard in a way Batshuayi failed to.
Which 3 players can do exactly these if the former Marseille hitman leaves on loan come January?
An experienced striker as far as the Premier League goes, the 28-year-old sure has unfinished business in the top flight after leaving Manchester United without much chance to prove himself in his last days at the Old Trafford.
Chicharito still has at least one more big move left in him, at least considering his recent form in the Bayer Leverkusen colours, and he might not likely reject an opportunity to link up with Chelsea on a temporary basis come January.
He has proven to be a great loan player and backup option during his days at Real Madrid, and he is definitely one that can give Costa the run for the money given that he also has goal-poaching instincts.
The Mexico international has 5 Bundesliga goals in 11 starts this term, and would likely jump at an opportunity to impress and show his worth to potential suitors, and that might include Chelsea in the long run.
