We at the Transfer Tavern were excited to see that Standard Liege striker Michy Batshuayi has claimed he dreams of a move to Arsenal and that it could happen next summer, as reported by Sky Sports.
The Belgian striker is one of the hottest prospects in European football at present as Belgium appear to be the nation that continues to produce top class footballers.
The 20-year-old has already notched 14 goals this season for Liege as well as five for the Belgium Under-21 side and January bids could well be submitted for the brutal striker.
Arsenal are hoping to secure the signing of another forward this winter and Batshuayi could fit the bill with Arsene Wenger once again set to give younger players a chance.
Batchshuayi would relish a move to North London but would also seek a deal with the Gunners’ Champions League rivals Borussia Dortmund.
“I don’t think I think will be playing in Belgium next season. My parents, especially my dad, think I’m ready for the next step,” Batshuayi told Het Laatste Nieuws
“This summer there was some interest, but I decided I didn’t want to leave Standard without leaving a trace – being champion or being top scorer.
“I’ve two dreams clubs in Europe – Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund. Borussia because of their mix between quality and spirit, Arsenal because they give opportunities to young and talented players.”
