TRANSFER LATEST! Crystal Palace In Talks To Sign Michy Batshuayi


Crystal Palace are in talks with Chelsea over bringing striker Michy Batshuayi back to Selhurst Park on a season-long loan.

The Belgium striker, whose contract expires next summer, is set to sign a 12-month extension to his current Chelsea deal.

It would be a second loan spell to Selhurst Park in three seasons for the 26-year-old. He scored six goals in 13 appearances in the second half of the 2018/19 season.

Batshuayi has dropped to fourth choice in the pecking order at Chelsea behind Timo Werner, Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham.

He did not play a single minute under Frank Lampard after a substitute appearance against Bournemouth on February 29.

Palace struggled for goals last season with a return of 31 from 38 Premier League matches. Their top goalscorer was Jordan Ayew on nine.

If Palace sign Batshuayi, it would prevent them bringing in Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher on loan as Premier League rules stipulate a club cannot loan more than one player from another club in a transfer window.
