At Valencia, the Belgian has played 23 games and scored three goals, one in LaLiga, one in the Champions League and one in the Copa del Rey.

'We are negotiating with several clubs an exit for Batshuayi, ' Valencia's sporting director Mateu Alemany said on Thursday.

Palace now find themselves 14th in the standings, and their tally of just 19 goals from 21 games is the third-lowest in the Premier League.

"We are expecting an exit in the few hours or days".

"I know him well, we were close with Belgium", Henry said of the forward.

A move back to the French league could be exactly what Batshuayi needs having struggled for form during his time with Valencia during the first half of the season. Valencia say he will leave the club as soon as possible but his time in Spain might not be finished.

With Everton now sitting 11th in the Premier League, manager Marco Silva may look towards the Chelsea outcast for some more firepower to help the Toffees towards a strong finish to the campaign. He is leaving now and it is now a matter of negotiation.

It is believed that Crystal Palace, Fulham and former club Marseille are all courting Batshuayi's status, be it loan or permanent.

But Everton should overlook the fact that it is Batshuayi's poor performances that have even opened the door to them signing him at this juncture at all. The Belgian's only played 32 times in the Premier League, although still a damn sight more than some of the Blues' loanees, but he's played almost as many games in La Liga and the Bundesliga in that time.
