Michy Batshuayi becomes the first Antonio Conte’s signing for Chelsea as he completes his £33 million move to the London club.
The 22-year-old, who was a part of the Belgian squad at EURO 2016, has joined Chelsea on a five-year contract from Ligue 1 side Marseille.
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.”
He follows the footsteps of Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, who also moved to Stamford Bridge from Marseille.
Michy Batshuayi scored more league goals (17) last season than D. Costa, L. Remy, A. Pato & R. Falcao combined (15).
