Newcastle enter race for Belgian striking sensation

Newcastle are reportedly the latest Premier League club to covet Marseille forward Michy Batshuayi, with the North East club readying a January raid for the Belgian according to The Mirror.

The gifted centre forward has netted eight Ligue 1 goals this season and has also broken into a star-studded Belgian national side.

Both Tottenham and Arsenal have been linked with Batshuayi in recent times, with the young striker creating a solid reputation in the French top flight.

The attacker is rated at £22 million, but the report suggests that Marseille will hold out for a figure closer to the £35 million mark.

The Stade Velodrome outfit sold a host of their top players in the summer, with Newcastle having a track record of working with them to land Florian Thauvin.

After a 3-0 defeat to Leicester yesterday at home, Steve McClaren’s men look set for a season fighting against relegation.
