Maurizio Sarri has, however, decided that he can do without the 24-year-old striker.
That has freed Batshuayi to head out of west London once more, with a new challenge set to be taken on in Spain.
On the back of his World Cup efforts with Belgium over the summer, Batshuayi had several options to consider.
With the exit door opened at Chelsea, several sides were quick to express an interest in securing his services.
Sevilla were also keen on reaching a loan agreement , but Champions League football ultimately worked in Valencia’s favour, meaning the Andalucian outfit will now pursue AC Milan forward Andre Silva.
Interest from Atletico Madrid was also shunned, with Mestalla considered to be the perfect destination for a proven frontman.
The target was found nine times in his debut campaign with Chelsea, before recording 10 efforts last term.
Reaching double figures was not enough to earn a regular role under Antonio Conte, though, and Batshuayi linked up with Dortmund in January – managing nine goals for them in 14 appearances.
