Striker fears for his spot in Belgium's World Cup squad this summer after barely featuring under Antonio Conte

Michy Batshuayi is wanted by Sevilla this month

Batshuayi has barely featured under Antonio Conte this season, with the Italian preferring to go with Eden Hazard as his main striker when Alvaro Morata has been unavailable.

It means the 24-year-old is now sweating over his future in west London.

And with the world’s biggest tournament on the horizon, Batshuayi could now be set for a move to Spain to secure regular action.

New Sevilla boss Vincenzo Montella has apparently identified the hitman as the perfect short-term signing.
