Batshuayi began his professional career at Standard Liège in 2011, scoring 44 goals in 120 games across all competitions.

He then transferred to Marseille for £4.5 million, helping them reach the 2016 Coupe de France Final.

In July 2016, he was signed by Chelsea for £33 million, and scored the goal that won the Premier League title in his debut season.

Batshuayi scored on his international debut for Belgium against Cyprus in March 2015. He was part of their side that reached the quarter-finals of UEFA Euro 2016.
