Afternoon everyone, here is Tuesday’s lunchtime round up:

West Ham want to sign Michy Batshuayi on loan from Chelsea. (Sky Sports)

Batshuayi is apparently stalling on a move to Swansea, as he would prefer to join the Hammers. (Mirror)

Batshuayi would be a brilliant signing. He has looked good when he has played for Chelsea but hasn’t been given enough time. He would thrive with us I’m sure.

Hopefully we get this deal wrapped up soon. Really excited to see him play if we get him and I hope he can bring his Brentford form to us.

David Gold has revealed the shocking reason as to why West Ham pulled out of a deal to sign Jermain Defoe this month. (Express)

West Ham are in a fight to keep Michail Antonio at the club, with Chelsea boss Antonio Conte watching the winger. (Evening Standard)

Michail wouldn’t leave us, I don’t think. He is so loved at West Ham and would only be moving to sit on the bench at Chelsea.

Tony Cottee says Dimitri Payet could leave West Ham if they fail to improve their form. (Sky Sports)
