Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has had it tough this season as he has failed to impress in Chelsea colours and is currently the club’s third choice striker after the recent form of Olivier Giroud.

After three loan spells and finding it hard to impress under three different managers in Antonio Conte, Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard, the Belgian has failed to cement a first-team spot at the club and could finally leave Chelsea at the end of the season.

The 26-year-old is ready to leave Chelsea permanently at the end of the season but is keen to remain in London.

Batshuayi enjoyed a fine spell at Crystal Palace last season where he netted 6 goals in 13 appearances.

Crystal Palace are set to offer Michy Batshuayi an escape route from Chelsea in the summer, and the former Marseille striker might call it quits with Chelsea after four years at the club.

He was an unused substitute against Everton as Chelsea thumped Everton in a 4-0 victory, with Lampard opting to hand 18-year-old Armando Broja a debut in his stead.
