Crystal Palace fans excited by potential Batshuayi deal

Crystal Palace are closing in on the Deadline Day signing of Michy Batshuayi from Chelsea, per Sky Sports.

The Belgium striker has, per the aforementioned report, agreed personal terms with the Eagles as they seek to bolster their attack.

Football FanCast reported earlier on Thursday that West Ham had pulled out of negotiations to take Batshuayi on loan, such were his wage demands. The striker wanted £170,000-per-week, while Chelsea were keen to receive a £2million loan fee.

Batshuayi had been keen to join Tottenham Hotspur, but Chelsea were always unlikely to let him leave for their top four and London rivals.

Palace have now seemingly moved to secure the striker – the news was first broke by Kaveh Solhekol and has since been followed up by Sky Sports’ full report.

And fans can hardly believe the prospect of the eleventh-hour deal being pulled off by Roy Hodgson’s men.
