Conte Plotting Swap Deal with West Ham?

Michy Batshuayi, who joined Chelsea from Marseille for £33m earlier this summer, is yet to start a League game for Antonio Conte this season and is understood to be unsettled at Stamford Bridge.

Premier League Season Review – West Ham United

West Ham United: 7th FA Cup: Quarter-finals Capital One Cup: Round Three Europa League: Third Qualifying Round It was always certain to be an emotional season for West Ham as they said goodbye to their home of over a century, Upton Park, before their long-awaited move to the Olympic Stadium for 2016-17.

Bournemouth vs West Ham – Premier League preview and team news

West Ham United will be hoping to continue their recent resurgence with a third successive win as they head to Bournemouth, who have lost just one of their last eight Premier League matches.
