L'Equipe now reporting that Marseille have signed Steven Fletcher from Sunderland. Batshuayi in play?

Correction: it's a 5-month loan deal.

Batshuayi has ambitions
Thursday, L'Équipe reports on the future of Michy Batshuayi . Thus, in recent weeks, Vincent Labrune was very busy for a young striker. Newcastle had referred in particular an offer of 30 million euros. Nevertheless, the question for the Belgian from the OM during the season, but a start could finally be topical this summer. Thus, according to sports daily, Batshuayi hopes to tap into the eye of bigger clubs and take the next step in his career. With Tottenham, contacts are also well underway.

Not sure how 'advanced', but would love it if there's substance here.

There are 2 reports that are saying we are in advanced talks over signing Batshuayi in the summer.
I'm not posting the links cos I got such a kicking over my last posting.
Look on the official site under Media Watch and you'll find them.

Wouldn't it be fantastic if we completed the signing of a highly coveted number 9 before the Euro's even started. Just like the Modric transfer, but in the position we always find difficult to sign.

Shame it's the Metro which makes the Sun seem like gospel.

It's l'equipe reporting we are in advanced talks. Metro are just recycling the story.

Batshuayi is not a Belgium regular. Lukaku is certainly ahead of him in pecking order & is firing goals in for the club. I can't see Batshuayi getting minutes unless there are injuries. Its currently a very remote chance that his stock would rise after Euros, given the competition ahead of him.

He'd be an ideal partner for Kane, a freakish athletic striker, who will be able to create more space for Harry and Eriksen. And he can handle himself as a lone striker as well. I'm one of those, who have been pining for him since he was at Liege, so it would be great to finally get my man in a round about way.

Here's the image grabbed from the article which isn't on their website but is only in the L'Equipe printed magazine type thing. Just need somebody who can translate. :oops:

Basically, the article says he is under contract until 2020. That he is the best player at OM according to Vincent Labrune and that at 22 he has huge potential that needs to be worked on (perfected). This is shown by his performance against PSG (don't know if he was good or bad I didn't see the game) but that it is promising that he has scored 12 goals in his first season in Ligue 1. Then says that Newcastle made a huge verbal offer of €30 million but OM refused and that Spurs are now in advanced talks about signing him.
