Michy Batshuayi Agrees Terms to Join Crystal Palace on Loan From Chelsea

As per the latest reports, Chelsea have agreed on loan deals with both West Ham United and Real Betis and it is now up to the player as to where he wants to move next.

The Belgium worldwide spent the first half of the season on loan at Valencia in Spain, but failed to make an impact under Los Che coach Marcelino.

Batshuayi's poor form in Spain resulted in that season-long deal being terminated early paving the way for Batshuayi to complete a dramatic switch to Crystal Palace for the second half of the campaign.

Mauricio Pochettino desperately needs some back-up for Harry Kane after he was ruled out until March with an ankle injury and Tottenham are looking to offload Vincent Janssen to Schalke.

Everton are interested in Michy Batshuayi and Chelsea are keen to sell him - but only if the Toffees meet their valuation of £35 million for the Belgian.

The same article from Sky suggests that Batshuayi is demanding an eye watering weekly wage of £160,000 per week which has put off both West Ham and Betis on deadline day.

However, it looks unlikely that he will be heading to Tottenham.

A permanent move away would make sense for the Belgian, however, we have failed with some transfers going on to become big names.

West Ham have also sent a youngster on loan to Germany, with Reece Oxford signing for Augsburg, while Spurs forward Georges-Kevin N'Koudou has joined Monaco for six months.

Chelsea look all set to offload Michy Batshuayi and there is no shortage of takers for him.
