According to a report from the Daily Mail, Crystal Palace will look to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi for a second time during the January transfer window.
Palace are the lowest goalscorers in the top-half of the Premier League. Just four sides have found the back of the net on fewer occasions than Roy Hodgson’s men.
Meanwhile, Batshuayi has found forcing his way into Frank Lampard’s side difficult. His one start this term came in the Carabao Cup, but he has come off the bench five times in the league.
The Belgian put the exclamation point on the Blues’ 4-1 win at Southampton on Sunday with the final goal. He also bagged a brace in the League Cup.
The Daily Mail reports that Palace plan to make a fresh move for the 26-year-old when the winter window opens.
The Mail reports Batshuayi – who cost £33 million – has less than two years left on his contract at Stamford Bridge.
Batshuayi will have happy memories from his loan spell at Palace last season. He scored five league goals in 11 Premier League appearances for the Eagles.
And it would be no surprise if he was open to joining Hodgson’s men again if he continues to struggle for game-time. With Tammy Abraham taking full advantage of his chance, it is difficult to see the former Marseille man getting that opportunity anytime soon.
