'Chelsea's literally in my blood!' – Batshuayi swats away transfer talk in video

The Belgian international has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, but seems committed to the cause at Chelsea

Michy Batshuayi claims talk of a move away from Chelsea is silly, given that the club is "literally" in his blood. 

The Belgian striker posted a video on Twitter of blood tests during a pre-season medical, and jokingly attempted to cool speculation linking him with a move away from Stamford Bridge.

"When ppl asking me where I'm going but Chelsea's LITERALLY in my blood right now," the 23-year-old striker said. 

Batshuayi struggled to find playing time in his first season with Chelsea after joining from Marseille last summer for a deal in excess of £30 million.

After making just one Premier League start in 2016-17 Batshuayi has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs including West Ham, while French champions Monaco have also been credited with an interest. 

With Diego Costa seemingly on his way out, however, and with Chelsea transfer target Romelu Lukaku heading to Manchester United, Batshuayi could have more of a part to play at Stamford Bridge in 2017-18.
