Leeds United have been linked with a move for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi and many fans are excited by the news.

The first report of a Leeds link came a couple of weeks ago when it was claimed his agent had offered him to Victor Orta.

We didn’t think a lot about it then – his wages are high and we hadn’t heard him mentioned by any of our Leeds sources.

However, Phil Hay has now confirmed that Batshuayi is a definite back-up option for Leeds if they can’t land their number one target Said Benrahma.

One thing that the Chelsea player has over Benrahma as far as some Leeds fans are concerned is that he’s an out-and-out striker.

With Patrick Bamford as the only senior striker at the club, many fans think another senior centre forward is an absolute must in the Premier League.

Batshuayi is seemingly on his way out of Chelsea. He’s fallen down the pecking order at Chelsea, with Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham ahead of him, and Timo Werner on his way in.

Bielsa knows him already from his time at Marseille, as some fans have pointed out.

Others are convinced that he’s the player Leeds need for goals in the Premier League. One supporter said, “I think I want him more than anyone now”.

It’s a signing that would definitely show Leeds’ ambition and these fans would love to see it happen…
