Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi will not be leaving the Blues this summer, according to a report.

Belgium forward Michy Batshuayi will reportedly not be leaving Chelsea in this summer's transfer window.

The 25-year-old has managed a respectable 19 goals in 53 appearances for the Blues, but he has spent time out on loan with Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace since moving to Stamford Bridge.

There had been suggestions that the centre-forward would move on again this summer, having found it difficult to earn a regular spot with the capital giants.

However, Alvaro Morata's move to Atletico Madrid and Gonzalo Higuain's return to Juventus has left Chelsea - currently under a transfer ban - short of options in the final third of the field.

As a result, according to Goal.com, Batshuayi will stay with Frank Lampard's side this summer with a view to battling Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud for the starting centre-forward role during the 2019-20 campaign.

The Belgian, who has a contract at Chelsea until the summer of 2021, managed five goals in 11 Premier League appearances for Palace in the second half of last season.
