Spurs to beat West Ham to 17-goal star despite PL rivals seeing £31m bid accepted

According to reports from The Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur are set to win the race for Michy Batshuayi’s signature despite Crystal Palace having a £31million bid accepted by Marseille.

The 22-year-old bagged 17 goals and nine assists in Ligue 1 last season, despite L’OM finishing up in the bottom half amid a terrible season at Stade Velodrome.

Vincente Labrune’s side have already confirmed their intentions to sell the athletic forward this summer in a bid to comply with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations – which could force them to hurry a deal before July 5th.

And The Guardian reported yesterday evening that Marseille had accepted a £31million bid from Crystal Palace – whilst a similar offer from West Ham has been on the table since the end of May.

But according to The Daily Mail, Spurs remain confident that they’re still the front-runners in the race for the Belgium international’s signature and can obtain it for a better price.

However, Batshuayi is yet to accept or reject any approaches from any of his suitors.
