Spurs have been linked with the Belgium international for several months and were expected to make an offer after boss Mauricio Pochettino admitted at the end of April that he is a big fan of the 22-year-old.

However, the latest speculation states they have yet to table a bid for Batshuayi, leaving them in danger of missing out on the striker’s signature.

Rivals West Ham have submitted a bid worth around £31million, with a large portion of the fee paid up front and the deal featuring several potential bonus payments.

That offer from the Hammers is still thought to be on the table but they have now been join by Juventus in making an offer for Batshuayi as they seek to replace Alvaro Morata, who is returning to Real Madrid.

Marseille are said to be under pressure to sell their star asset and are eager for a sale to go ahead, reports in the French media suggesting that his future could be sorted as early as next week.
