Crystal Palace fans on Twitter have called for Michy Batshuayi to be signed on a permanent basis, after his two-goal display against Bournemouth on the final day helped the club achieve their highest points tally for a single Premier League season.
The Belgian international arrived on loan from Chelsea in January, and has hit an impressive five goals in nine league starts for the Eagles; signing him permanently could prove difficult, however, as his parent club Chelsea have been hit with a transfer ban.

Despite that, a number of fans still want to see him signed due to him excellent performances since arriving at Selhurst Park, where he has helped ease the south Londoners’ lack of goals; Christian Benteke and Connor Wickham finished the campaign with just a single goal each.
The former Marseille forward has quickly become a fan favourite in SE25, so let’s take a look at what the Palace supporters on Twitter have been saying about him after his double against the Cherries…
If we had Michy from the start of the season I reckon he would’ve scored 10-12 goals for us #Cpfc. I say we sign him

Before today, I was content with the prospect of Michy Batshuayi returning to Chelsea. Not anymore. He just comes alive in the box and has averaged a goal every 2 games since signing for us in January. 6 goals in all competitions is a more than good enough return. #CPFC ❤? pic.twitter.com/RYj3XrfU6V
