Batshuayi keen to extend stay at Dortmund

Chelsea news Marco Reus urges Borussia Dortmund to seal permanent Michy Batshuayi deal

Marco Reus has urged Borussia Dortmund to turn Michy Batshuayi's loan move into a permanent deal once the 2017/18 campaign ends.

He scored five goals in his first three games which led to talk that the player will extend his stay at the club following the conclusion of the current loan deal.

On Sunday, the on-loan Chelsea striker bagged a brace, including a last minute victor in Dortmund's 3-2 win against Eintracht Frankfurt.

"I feel very well here, but that's a matter between Dortmund and Chelsea", he said.

With Dortmund having lost Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal on a permanent transfer in January, the black and yellows will be on the hunt for a striker in the summer, once Batshuayi returns to Chelsea.

Skipper Marco Reus, who penned a new deal until 2023 last week, wants the former Marseille man to be at Signal Iduna Park beyond this season.

Reus has been impressed by the striker's impact, and he told German publication Bild: "I would be very happy if Michy stays".

Batshuayi struggled to hold down a regular spot since his move to Stamford Bridge, starting just four Premier League games in total.

Since stepping in as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's replacement after the Gabon worldwide moved to Arsenal, Batshuayi has scored seven goals for BVB - the latest being a dramatic last-gasp victor against Eintracht Frankfurt at Signal Iduna Park on Saturday.
