The Belgian is on loan for the second consecutive season, having spent the second half of the 2017/18 campaign with Borussia Dortmund after failing to impress both Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri.

Now the Blues want to hasten his departure from Stamford Bridge and have offered him to fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace, according to Belgian outlet HLN.

Batshuayi has scored 19 times for Chelsea

Roy Hodgson is in need of a goal-scoring striker at Selhurst Park as he has had to rely heavily on Wilfried Zaha to both score and create goals.

There is also interest from other clubs in Europe, with Monaco, Roma and AC Milan all keen on the forward.

Batshuayi joined Chelsea in 2016 from Marseille for £33.2million. Although he was never prolific, his goal against West Brom secured the title in Conte’s first year in charge in 2017.

In total, Batshuayi has made 53 appearances for Chelsea and scored 19 times in all competitions.
