According to results from our recent poll, the overwhelming majority of Crystal Palace fans would back a move for Chelsea’s Michy Batshuayi – The Mirror reported last week that the Eagles were set to battle it out with the likes of Everton and Marseille for the hitman’s signature.
The 25-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge – Maurizio Sarri prefers Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata up front – and so he was sent out on loan to Valencia, however that has been cut short after he failed to impress across the channel.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace’s goalscoring woes are well-documented. Christian Benteke hasn’t scored this season and may take some time to settle back in amongst the goals after his injury – although, he was rarely on the scoresheet anyway – and Alexander Sorloth has been loaned out to Belgian outfit Genk, while Jordan Ayew is a hard-worker but not a striker.
We suggested that Batshuayi would be a perfect fit at Selhurst Park and an upgrade on his countryman Benteke and it turns out a massive 95% of Palace fans agreed with us – you can check out the full results of the poll below…
