Borussia Dortmund will make an attempt to secure Michy Batshuayi’s services on a permanent basis in the summer transfer window, according to the London Evening Standard.

Batshuayi was drafted in by Dortmund on loan at the end of January as a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who joined Chelsea’s Premier League counterparts Arsenal in a club-record deal.

The Belgian has wasted no time making an impression in Germany, scoring on his Dortmund debut against FC Koln away from home. Batshuayi then followed up his debut goal with a brace against Hamburger SV.

If he continues his electric goal-scoring form, the Dortmund faithful will be sad to see him go in the summer. However, the London Evening Standard claim that the Bundesliga outfit have not ruled out the possibility of signing Batshuayi permanently, and will make an attempt to do so when the transfer window reopens.

Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has, however, conceded that signing Batshuayi would be difficult, especially if he continues to score in the manner that he has recently, as the London Evening Standard report:

“There is always a chance, although if he scores in every game, it will be difficult.”
