Batshuayi has arrived at Chelsea in 2016 from Ligue 1 giants, Marseille, for a reported €40m fee. He has won the Premier League trophy in his debut campaign in England, founding back of the net that sealed the trophy in a 1-0 victory away at West Bromwich Albion.
However, he has struggled to cement place in the starting XI at the West London club. making only 48 Premier League games in total in five years, 43 of these came from the bench scoring eight goals and providing three assists.
The Belgium international has spent most of his time at Chelsea out on loan. He enjoyed a prolific spell at Bundesliga giants, Borussia Dortmund, where he scored seven goals from 10 games, however, struggled to maintain the same form at Crystal Palace and Valencia.
Now his time with Chelsea set to came to the end, with Turkish source Milliyet reporting that Trabzonspor are on the verge to get the deal done.
The last term, Trabzonspor finished fourth in the Turkish Super Lig. securing a place in the Europa Conference League, where they will play with the likes of AS Roma and Tottenham Hotspur.
It is unclear how much the Blues will receive for Belgian forward, however, it is unlikely that they will recoup much of the €40m paid for his signature.
The 27-year-old forward has now one year left before his contract expires next summer.
Olivier Giroud and Izzy Brown have both departed from the club and Batshuayi will be the third striker leaving the team, while Tammy Abraham’s future also remains up in the air, Aston Villa and West Ham United are both keen on signing him.
This has left manager Thomas Tuchel with very few options upfront leading the rumours about a possible addition of new world-class forwards Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski.
