Michy Batshuayi is back at Chelsea after spending the last 18 months away on loan.

The striker who joined from Marseille three years ago has two years left on his contract and he will be hoping to become an important player at the club this year or leave the Blues permanently.

Batshuayi spent the second half of last season on loan at Crystal Palace and according to The Times via 101 Great Goals, Crystal Palace will step up their interest in re-signing Michy Batshuayi this summer.

Crystal Palace are keen on signing the striker this summer after he scored six goals in 13 appearances during his loan spell at the club. Money won’t be a problem for Crystal Palace after they sold Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United and could also cash in big on Wilfried Zaha.

With Chelsea unable to sign a replacement this summer, Frank Lampard is highly unlikely to sanction a move to Crystal Palace for Batshuayi.

Frank Lampard has told the players that everyone will be given a chance to prove their worth during preseason and Batshuayi could just grab the chance and become an important player for Chelsea.

Will Batshuayi get his chance to impress Lampard? Or will the striker leave west London again?
