Crystal Palace are set to sign Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi.
The Daily Mail says Batshuayi, 26, is expected to sign a one-year extension to his current contract at Stamford Bridge and then re-join Palace for the season.
Batshuayi’s existing Chelsea deal expires next summer and the additional 12 months will ensure he does not become a free agent once his loan expires.
Batshuayi joined Chelsea for £33m from Marseille in 2016 but has struggled for regular game time and been pushed further down the pecking order this summer following the Blues’ spending spree.
The £53m signing of Timo Werner, in addition to forwards Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud already in the squad, means Batshuayi is effectively fourth-choice in Frank Lampard’s options up top.
