Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi could be set for a permanent exit from Stamford Bridge this summer if the recent reports are anything to go by. The Belgium international striker is aware that his time with the Blues is all over and has been looking for a new club since some months ago. Batshuayi has long found himself down the pecking order at the club following the arrivals of Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham, and Timo Werner in recent months.

His lack of game time was a huge problem for him and after letting his intentions known that he would like to leave the club on loan, he decided to join Crystal Palace after the London club made a loan offer for him. He joined Palace last summer and spent the rest of the season at Selhurst Park but after returning to Stamford Bridge following the completion of his loan spell at Palace, he is now looking for an escape route in form of a new club where he can continue his footballing career.

Palace were not really impressed with the striker and still have doubts about taking him back on a permanent transfer from Chelsea. However, about two unmentioned clubs in the top half of the Premier League have shown interest in signing him already. Everton were said to be keen on signing the striker last summer but Palace were able to eclipse their offer and eventually won the race to land his signature.

Batshuayi is not the only striker linked with an exit from Stamford Bridge, with Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud also thought to be ready to move on this summer. Giroud has already reportedly given the green light about a rumored move to Italian Serie A giants AC Milan while Abraham has found it hard to find suitors after Chelsea placed a fee of £30 million on his head.
