Michy+Batshuayi+Olympique+de+Marseille+v+OGC+JeNn5KQGyWWlWest Ham will look at Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi for the summer claims the Daily Mail this afternoon.

David Sullivan has confirmed the club are keen to bring in a 20-goal-a-season striker ahead of their move to the Olympic Stadium and the report claims the Irons have identified the £20million-rated Batshuayi and are ready to turn to agent Mark McKay to help.

McKay was credited by David Sullivan for being instrumental in the signing of Dimitri Payet from Marseille and West Ham hope to utilise his strong relationship with Marseille president Vincent Labrune again to steal a march on rivals in the summer. Spurs are also said to be following Belgium international Batshuayi who has scored 15 goals so far this season.

  1. belgium players are definately flavour of the month the last few seasons,

    at least he won’t be off to the AFCON!

  2. That, AND he won’t need three years to adapt, AND he has his future ahead of him, AND each time he has come on the pitch with the national squad he has scored or given assists….

  3. Looks like a decent finisher, says his weaknesses are getting caught offside and passing, the way we play looks like with fast counter-attacking he would fit into the profile well enough, guess we wait and see what happens over the summer.
