Just like last season, could Michy Batshuayi this season, not in the favor of football of Antonio Conte. Often he had to with games, to score.

In total he came this season at 1160 speelminuten. Therein, he scored 12 times and he gave 2 assists. That equates to 1 goal per 97 minutes.

Bad statistics are not, but it was not enough to compete with Alvaro Morata. Last season it was the same story with Diego Costa.

Chelsea has also conducted talks with Tottenham to Batshuayi to swap with Fernando Llorente, but the Spurs would be the Red Devil also second playing the violin after Harry Kane. That he refused. With the eye at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Russia, he wants to now as much as possible to play forward.

Playing dress-up

That Batshuayi to Dortmund, meaning that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leaves, he goes in the Premier League football for Arsenal.

The Gabonese striker, played five seasons in black-and-yellow and made 98 goals in 143 matches. Sometimes he celebrated a goal by a mask of Batman, Marco Reus then played the role of Robin.

If playing dress-up arrives, Dortmund with Batshuayi is certainly a worthy replacement for Aubameyang. It is known that ‘Batsman’, such as the Belgian striker is called, points out with SpongeBob, a tekenfilmfiguurtje. With his bright yellow outfit will Batshuayi in Dortmund will surely score.

Competition

But more important, of course, is that he is also on the field living up to. With only competition from Alexander Isak, an eighteen-year-old Swede, and Maximilian Philipp, a 23-year-old German, it seems that Batshuayi is the number one in the rush hour.

Earlier this week reinforced Dortmund still with the Swiss international Manual Akanji, a 22-year-old defender from FC Basel, and with Sergio Gómez, a 17-year-old left FC Barcelona.
