Report: Palace lining up a fresh bid for Chelsea forward Batshuayi

Michy Batshuayi

Crystal Palace are looking to go back in for Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.

The Belgian impressed during a six-month loan at Palace last year where he notched six goals in 13 appearances.

But he’s found his playing chances limited under Blues boss Frank Lampard and has had to be content with a role off the bench.

The Daily Express reports that Palace are ready to offer the 26-year-old regular football across London.

Batshuayi will go into next season with just a year remaining on his contract so the Blues might decide to cash in.

Chelsea were after £45m for the former Marseille star when Palace were interested in January but may now take less for their front man.

The Eagles were interested in signing Everton’s Cenk Tosun full time but that deal may now be dead after he cut short his loan at Palace to undergo major knee surgery.
