Chelsea place a £22m transfer value on Belgian forward Michy Batshuayi, according to a report.

Chelsea have reportedly placed a £22m transfer value on Michy Batshuayi amid suggestions that Crystal Palace want to sign the striker in the January transfer window.

The Belgium international scored five times in 11 Premier League appearances on loan at Palace last season before returning to Stamford Bridge for the 2019-20 campaign.

Batshuayi is behind Tammy Abraham in the pecking order at Chelsea, though, and has only played 44 minutes of Premier League football this season.

According to The Express, Palace are eyeing a January move for the 26-year-old, although the Eagles will have to offer £22m to convince the Blues to part with the centre-forward.

Batshuayi, who will see his current deal at Stamford Bridge expire in June 2021, was on the scoresheet in Chelsea's 4-1 win at Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

The former Standard Liege youngster has also had loan spells with Borussia Dortmund and Valencia in recent seasons after struggling to make his mark with the six-time English champions.
