The Chelsea striker may make a move to Turkey after a loan spell at Crystal Palace last season.

Michy Batshuayi

is on the verge of closing the deal with

Besiktas

, as per reports from club coach

Sergen Yalcin

.

The 27-year-old is not included in

Chelsea

’s 2021-22 plans and

Romelu Lukaku

’s arrival has made him climb down the pecking order even further.

Batshuayi is now keen on making a move to Turkey for more game time.

"

The club is trying to sign a good center forward,"

Yalcin said.

"We are now negotiating with Chelsea's Michy Batshuayi.

"If everything goes well, we expect him to come here next week."

The Chelsea striker joined the club in 2016 from Marseille on a €40 million transfer fee.

The Belgian met the back of the net five times during his debut season with the Blues, but netted the winner in their clash against West Brom in 2017 to help Chelsea win the Premier League title.

However, he failed to be a regular player at Stamford Bridge and has been on loan spells at Crystal Palace, Valencia and Borussia Dortmund.

Batshuayi had a disappointing season at Palace, meeting the target only twice for the club all season.

He was named the rooster of Euro 2020 with Belgium, playing in one game as they were defeated at the hands of Italy in the quarter-final.
