Michy Batshuayi wants to return to Chelsea FC and prove himself next season, according to Belgian reporter Kristof Terreur.

The Belgian striker joined Crystal Palace on loan for the second half of last term after having initially been sent out on loan to Spanish side Valencia.

The 25-year-old scored five goals in 11 Premier League games for Palace last season but the striker is now seemingly set to return to Stamford Bridge.

According to Belgian reporter Terreur, Batshuayi is keen to return to the west London side and attempt to prove himself in the Blues team next season.

Speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast, Batshuayi said: “Chelsea expect Batshuayi to be back for pre-season.

“He still thinks he has the level for Chelsea. With a new manager, everything changes for him. Sarri wasn’t a fan of him. He’s happy to wait at Chelsea to see if he gets enough chances.”

Chelsea FC are currently banned from signing new players due to their two-transfer window suspension handed to them by Fifa.

The Blues signed Batshuayi from Marseille in 2016, and he scored the decisive goal in Chelsea’s 2016-17 Premier League title success under Antonio Conte.

The west London side finished in third place in the Premier League table last term and won the Europa League under Maurizio Sarri, before the Italian coach opted to leave Stamford Bridge to take over at Juventus last month.

Frank Lampard was appointed as Chelsea FC’s new manager on a three-year deal on Wednesday.
