The big Belgian failed his audition this campaign to secure his future at the Blues having mustered just one Premier League goal.

Batshuayi, who joined Chelsea in 2016 for a fee in the region of £33million, has struggled to secure a regular run in the first team having had loan spells at Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace.

Chelsea's transfer ban at the beginning of the campaign meant the Blues were forced to keep hold of him because they couldn't land a replacement.

But now with Frank Lampard ready to delve into the market, Batshuayi is likely to be one of the first out of the door.

His contract is expiring in just over a year time meaning the Blues will need to cash in now or risk losing him for nothing.

And reports in HLN suggest the Hammers are ready to take advantage as they look for a new striker.

Club record signing Sebastien Haller has failed to cut the mustard this campaign with just seven goals to his name.

Chelsea were initially hoping to raise £40m for this signature but know they will have to significantly drop their asking price in order to sell.

There are rumours that he could run down his deal in London and look to cash in personally when it expires in 2021.

Batshuayi could then get a big-money contract in China or the Middle East as a free agent.

The coronavirus pandemic means clubs will be forced to tighten the purse strings when the transfer window opens.
