Crystal Palace fans react to reported interest in Chelsea forward Michy Batshuayi

Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi is reportedly wanted by Crystal Palace – and some of the Palace fans on Twitter are desperate to sign him in the summer.

According to the Express, Roy Hodgson’s side are ready to make a move for the 26-year-old in the summer transfer window.

It is understood that the Blues wanted £45million for the centre-forward back in January when Palace made contact about trying to sign him, but they will expect a lower asking price at the end of the season.

The report explains that Chelsea will be ready to accept offers for the Belgium international and that the player wants to stay in London.

Batshuayi spent the second half of last season out on loan with Palace, where he impressed with six goals in 13 appearances for them.

It looks like they want to take him back to Selhurst Park on a permanent basis and a move is possible if clubs can agree a transfer fee.

Batshuayi has six goals in 24 appearances this season in Chelsea’s first-team, but now finds himself behind Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham in the pecking order.

The Belgian forward has provided some historic moments for the club including his title-clincher back in 2017, but doesn’t quite possess enough to be the main man in attack and perhaps moving him on would be a smart move by manager Frank Lampard.

Here are some Palace fans that are keen to re-sign Batshuayi:
