Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi completed his move to Chelsea on Sunday.
“Chelsea Football Club is delighted to announce Michy Batshuayi has today completed his transfer from Marseille,” the 2015 Premier League champions wrote on their website.
“The 22-year-old signed a five-year contract.
“A powerful, fast striker, the highly coveted Batshuayi moves to Stamford Bridge having developed a reputation as a fine finisher following spells in France and Belgium. Skilful and with the ability to beat opposing defenders with his quick feet, he is a threat in the air and also comfortable holding the ball up and linking the play.
“He was part of the Belgium squad at Euro 2016 and netted with his first touch on his tournament debut last Sunday, converting a cross from his new Chelsea team-mate Eden Hazard in a 4-0 win over Hungary.”
Batshuayi said: “I am delighted to sign for one of the biggest clubs in Europe and embark on the next chapter in my career. I hope I can help Chelsea win many trophies during my time at Stamford Bridge.
“Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois have told me many good things about the club, and with Antonio Conte coming in it’s an exciting time to become a Chelsea player.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for myself and my family, I am looking forward to playing in the Premier League next season.”Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
