Batshuayi – who earns £100,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com – has been on the books of Chelsea since 2016.
The Belgium international striker has failed to do much of note at the Blues, with the 26-year-old having spent time on loan at Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace in recent years.
According to WhoScored, Batshuayi made one start and 15 substitute appearances in the Premier League for Chelsea this past season, scoring one goal and providing one assist in the process.
The striker also scored one goal in 85 minutes in the Champions League, scored three goals in two EFL Cup ties, and one goal in two FA Cup matches, according to WhoScored.
Having failed to establish himself in the Chelsea starting lineup, perhaps it would be best for Batshuayi to move on.
