Chelsea are reported to have offered Napoli with the chance to sign Michy Batshuayi on a season-long loan with the option to buy at the end of the campaign.

The Belgian has played no part for the Blues in the opening four games of the season with Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham sharing the centre-forward duties upfront.

Amidst this, there has been speculation over the marksman's future and Italian journalist Dario Sarnataro has now claimed that Batshuayi has been offered to Napoli on loan.

Batshuayi has spent time on loan with Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Crystal Palace over the past 19 months, but it remains to be seen whether he would favour another temporary challenge.

The Blues are prepared to pay a portion of the striker's wages, should he make the move to Naples while the Italian side have the option to purchase him on a permanent deal when the season concludes.
