Batshuayi is reluctant to spend anther season on the bench at Chelsea.

Batshuayi says he needs to play ahead of 2018 World Cup.

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi doesn't want to spend another campaign on the bench at Stamford Bridge.

Batshuayi, who joined the west London club last summer in a £33m deal from Ligue 1 side Marseille, is looking to hold "amicable" talks with the Premier League champions this summer.

He said as quoted: "Everyone knows that I have to play more, that I have to score goals. There's a World Cup coming up next year. I want to be ready for the World Cup.

"I'm going to listen to what they (Chelsea) are saying and afterwards I'll discuss it with my agent and the club. Amicably, as friends of course.

"A loan? That's not up to me. That's up to them (Chelsea). They take the decisions, not me."

On his development as a player during his debut season at Stamford Bridge, he said: "When you're surrounded by top class players, like Cesc Fabregas, Eden Hazard, all of them, you only can make progress in a situation like that.

"I haven't played a lot, you know, but I managed to score one of the most important goals. It gave me a boost.

"Of course I wanted to play more. And of course I wanted to score more goals. That's normal. All players want that. But we have become champions. It's a wonderful experience."
