CHELSEA appear to have recruited a new scout in striker Michy Batshuayi according to his latest tweet – and Blues fans have been blowing up his replies with demands for who they want him to sign next.
Chelsea lost their most prized possession in Eden Hazard this week as he joined Real Madrid for a potential £150m+.
His departure had been imminent, with the Belgian admitting his time at Stamford Bridge was up after the Europa league final.
It is not known how Chelsea will spend the money or who will replace Hazard, though the Blues have acquired Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund.
And having jokingly claimed his responsibility for that signing, Batshuayi is entertaining several ambitious Blues fans on Twitter.
“Do you know who Houssem Aouar and Ousmane Dembele are by any chance?”

Having posted a farewell message to Hazard, the Crystal Palace loanee started the banter with fans by replying to one: “I signed Pulisic already but Ill see what I can do…”
And several fans responding with their ideas as to who he should recruit next.
“Get us Zaha michyyy,” one wrote.
A second added: “Please go talk to dembele.”
“Do you know who Houssem Aouar and Ousmane Dembele are by any chance?” asked another.
A fourth demanded: “One isn’t enough. Hazard left big shoes to fill. We need 2 to replace him.”
“Do you know Nicolas Pepe?” quizzed a fifth.
However, one fan has kept his fellow Blues supporters in check by reminding them about the clubs current transfer ban, writing: “The replies don’t know about the ban either lmao.”
Batshuayi is set to return to Chelsea after loan spells with Valencia and Crystal Palace this season.
