West Ham manager David Moyes was spotted at Stamford Bridge last night to watch transfer target Michy Batshuayi in action for Chelsea, according to the Daily Mail.
ESPN recently linked Batshuayi with Sevilla after a difficult season that has barely seen him handed any first-team opportunities by manager Antonio Conte.
The Daily Mail previously linked Chelsea with an interest in Hammers striker Andy Carroll, so it’s clear Moyes could do with a striker like Batshuayi as a replacement up front.
With Conte clearly not seeing the Belgium international as part of his first-team plans in the long run, it could make sense for both sides if the pair swapped places this month.
Chelsea fans won’t exactly be over the moon at the prospect of a signing like Carroll, but there could be some sense in replacing Batshuayi after his lack of impact at Stamford Bridge.
Despite impressing at previous club Marseille, the 24-year-old has managed just seven Premier League goals in a Blues shirt so far, and may not be quite at the level required to lead the line for a top team.
Moyes’ presence at the Bridge certainly suggests he’s keeping tabs on the player, with the Mail noting that the Scot appeared to watch him closely and take notes on how he was getting on in the FA Cup replay victory over Norwich City.
