Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is reportedly considering striker options to replace Michy Batshuayi in January.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has reportedly begun considering a number of potential replacements for Michy Batshuayi.

The Belgium international has struggled to find his feet at Stamford Bridge, having started just three Premier League games since arriving at the club from Marseille last year.

This season, the striker has scored twice in the Champions League and three times in the EFL Cup, but the 24-year-old is yet to get off the mark in the top flight.

According to The Telegraph, the reigning English champions are drawing up a list of potential replacements, with scouts expected to watch Red Star Belgrade forward Richmond Boakye this week.

If the Blues manage to bring in an adequate back-up to Alvaro Morata, then Batshuayi could reportedly be shipped out on loan.
