Batshuyi – looking for a Premier League move

Marseille interim boss Franck Passi has today made it clear that Michy Batsuhayi will leave the club in the summer.

West Ham – along with Tottenham – have been linked with a move for the Belgian who has been named in his country’s squad for Euro 2016.

A host of European clubs are monitoring his situation, including Juventus, but Batshuayi is believed to favour a move to the Premier League.

“Everybody knows that he will leave,” Passi said. “It is included in the accounts that Michy will be sold this summer.

“We will accept it. We know why players leave Marseille, the financials are not so enticing, we have to accept it.”

  1. Him or Lacazette, they’re good enough for me 😉

  2. Good enough for me too Matt.After seeing the missed chances against Manure then I will take either lol.If Bilic wants either then that’s endorsement enough for me.He is certainly more knowledge about any player than we fans so you have to trust in his & Tony Henrys judgement.

    • That’s for sure Rick… lol French footballers have always done well in England: Henry, Cantona, Ginola, Ben Arfa, Anelka, Martial and, of course, Payet… I don’t know why, I hope this tendency will continue… 😉

  3. Sign both of them along with jaanmat and gortze! Then we will win the treble lol.
