batshuayi-twee-jaar-langer-bij-standard-id4182773-1000x800-nTottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern have had plenty of reason to celebrate this season and they’ve been handed another reason to get excited today, with an exciting report handed to them alongside their latest round.

Metro, showing a printed page from French publication L’Equipestate that Tottenham Hotspur are in advanced talks with Marseille regarding the signing of exceptional forward Michy Batshuayi.

The Marseille forward has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, with Arsenal and Chelsea also keen on his services, and it’s likely the young forward will leave French football in the summer to move across the channel.

Batshuayi has impressed with 21 goals in 46 games for Marseille but with his French side stuck in mid table, it’s highly unlikely Marseille will be able to persuade him to stay put for next season.

Tottenham’s chances of securing a deal will be boosted by the likely Champions League football they can offer, whilst he will also have first-team assurances that he would be unable to get across North London.

Our landlord believes Batshuayi is an exceptionally gifted footballer and by partnering him with Harry Kane, Tottenham would boast a strike force that would have the best defensive lines in Europe scared.

Tottenham fans, is Batshuayi the ideal striking target for your club? Let us know in the comments below!
