The Belgium international hit 24 goals in Ligue 1 last season but has admitted he is set to leave Marseille after this summer’s European Championship in France.

The 22-year-old has been targeted by Spurs, as well as West Ham and Arsenal, and insists he is concentrating on performing for Belgium first, but would be open to a switch to a Premier League club.

When asked about his club future, the forward told Sky Sports: “I don’t think about that, I prefer to concentrate 100 per cent on the Euros, then we will see what happens.

“Everybody likes the Premier League. It has a lot of spectacle, a lot of goals and many good players. It is natural that every good player is attracted by that league.”

Batshuayi is valued at around £25million following his prolific spell at Marseille and Spurs will hope to lure him to White Hart Lane, with the promise of Champions League football next season an added bargaining tool.
