Turkish side Besiktas won the 2020-21 Super Lig and will feature in the Champions League.

Since arriving at Stamford Bridge from Marseille for £33m, Batshuayi has scored 25 goals in 77 appearances for the Blues.

He scored six goals under Frank Lampard in the 2019-20 season but with Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud in fine form that season he struggled for opportunities.

He helped Chelsea to win the Premier League in 2016-17, his debut season.

The move comes as Romelu Lukaku returns to the Blues and Abraham departs for Roma.
