We all know that another quality striker has to be the priority for our transfer targets at Tottenham this summer.
One striker we’ve continually been linked with for a number of months is Marseille’s Michy Batshuayi.
Today it emerged that Crystal Palace have apparently had a £31million bid accepted for the Belgian international with Marseille facing a transfer embargo if they fail to raise £21million before July 5th.
Tottenham are yet to meet Marseille’s valuation of £31million (no surprise there) as according to the Daily Mail, Spurs feel they can land the player at a better price and are confident of attracting the player despite the Palace bid.
Batshuayi scored 17 goals in 36 appearances in League 1 for France last season and the 22-year-old is exactly the type of striker we need to try and take some of the goalscoring burden off Harry Kane.
