Arsenal are yet to confirm their interest in Belgian starlet Michy Batshuayi, according to the player’s agent, reports talkSPORT.

Arsene Wenger has been linked with a move for the young striker, who is being described as the new star of Belgian football – a country which has produced the likes of Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku in recent years.

Batshuayi has shown form this season to suggest he could surpass even those two, scoring 12 goals in 19 appearances for Standard Leige, and has been playing with a maturity and confidence of a far more experienced player.

His form has attracted interest from several clubs across Europe, with Arsenal said to be one of them.

However, the players agent Katrien Meire has revealed while several Italian clubs have enquired about the availability of the in form striker, the club have heard nothing from Arsenal.

She told Calciomercato: “Interest of Italian clubs? Some intermediaries have asked. Nobody from the Gunners has talked to us – they are just rumours.”

20-year-old Batshuayi is yet to earn a senior call up to the Belgian national side, however he has managed five goals in seven appearances for the Under-21′s.

Standard Leige are understood to value the player at around £4.5million.
