Opinion: £33m Crystal Palace target would be a superb signing for Everton in January - initially posted on Sportslens.com

Chelsea signed Michy Batshuayi in 2016 for £33m, however the Belgian striker has struggled for normal games at Stamford Bridge.

He has seen managers come and go, but his state of affairs has hardly improved. He was all the time behind the likes of Diego Costa, Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud within the pecking order since he joined from Marseille, and underneath Frank Lampard, Tammy Abraham is being most popular ahead of him.

The 26-year-old impressed during his mortgage spell at Selhurst Park the place he scored six occasions in 11 begins and 13 appearances in complete. Crystal Palace are crying out for a natural centre-forward and are reportedly interested in signing him in January.

Nevertheless, Palace are usually not the only club who are desperate to sign a striker. Everton are struggling badly within the league and find themselves 18th in the table after eight video games.

The Toffees have managed only six objectives thus far, and clearly signing a striker must be a prime priority for Marco Silva in January.

Moise Kean is but to open his account and Dominic Calvert-Lewin hasn’t given the impression that he can score 15-20 objectives in a season. And that's the reason, Everton must move for Batshuayi who has all the time impressed each time he has been given a chance.

He has just managed 45 minutes of football underneath Lampard and has already found the web as soon as, scoring in Chelsea’s Four-1 victory over Southampton previous to the international break.

The Belgian is cheaper than ever today and Everton who previously confirmed interest in him should not miss out on the opportunity to signal him.
