Crystal Palace

Spurs confident of beating London rivals to lethal £31m forward

While the Crystal Palace fans in the Transfer Tavern were dancing on the pool tables following news their club was ready to smash the transfer record for Michy Batshuayi.

The news came as a shock to pretty much everyone in the Transfer Tavern, though our most ardent Landlord has seen it all before.

He’s shown little surprise at reports from the Daily Mail claiming Tottenham Hotspur are still hopeful of completing a deal for the lethal Belgian forward.

A move to White Hart Lane has been mooted as a landing spot for a while now, while West Ham United have also been strongly linked for the 22-year old.

Having landed Victor Wanyama already this summer, Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be very keen on luring the former Standard Liege man to North London this summer ahead of their venture back into the Champions League.

While the Eagles have agreed a fee for the striker, he is said to be on the verge their offer of moving to South London in an attempt to thrash out a bigger deal.

Is the Belgian forward worth the hype?
