Chelsea are reportedly prepared to part ways with Michy Batshuayi at the turn of the year, should any club meet their £22m valuation for the marksman.

The Belgian has played second fiddle to Tammy Abraham for the striker's role this season and he has been afforded with just 44 minutes of playing time in the Premier League.

According to The Express, the west London side may be willing to listen to offers for Batshuayi, who has failed to nail down a starting spot since joining the club.

The same publication claims that Crystal Palace are interested in re-signing the former Marseille man and they will have to make an offer of at least £22m to convince the Blues into doing business.

Batshuayi spent the season half of the previous season on loan with the Eagles and he was successful with six goals from 11 appearances for the south London outfit.

Chelsea are presently under a transfer ban until June 2020 but they are hopeful of winning their appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport by the New Year.
