According to Belgian publication Het Laatste Nieuws, Chelsea have ‘offered’ Michy Batshuayi to Leeds United.
The 26-year-old only has one year remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge and will have to be sold in this window should the Blues wish to receive a transfer fee for the striker.

The Belgian international has seen himself drop further down in Frank Lampard’s plans following the arrival of Timo Werner from RB Leipzig and Leeds are apparently ready to take him off the Chelsea books.
Since arriving from Marseille for just over £33 million in 2016, much of Batshuayi’s best football has come away from Chelsea during loan spells at the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Crystal Palace.
The Blues will know they are unlikely to recoup all of the money spent on the 26-year-old, however, they seem unwilling to let him go on the cheap, a reported figure of around £22 million would be required to take him away, a fee which may stretch Leeds’ interest too far.
The Belgium international certainly has an eye for goal and should somebody be able to get the best out of him, there is a player in there – his international record of 16 goals in 29 matches proves his ability.
Batshuayi made 16 Premier League appearances last season scoring just once and with Werner, Tammy Abraham, and Oliver Giroud as frontline options, the time could be right to move on for the Belgian.
