Arsenal keeping tabs on Michy Batshuayi


Marseille striker is attracting interest from North London

Arsenal are plotting a January bid for Marseille star Michy Batshuayi, according to reports.

The 22-year-old is making a name for himself in Ligue 1, and with Arsenal still in the market for a new striker, they are sending scouts around Europe to find possible signings.

The Gunners fell short in their pursuit of Karim Benzema from Real Madrid over the summer, and Arsene Wenger is now ready to scout out other candidates.

Striker Wanted

Batshuayi, who broke through at Standard Liege, has been in fine-form so far this season, scoring six goals in nine games for Marseille, making him one of the league’s top goalscorers.

According to French website Mercato365, the Marseille front-man is one name on Wenger‘s wishlist.

The Frenchman has also been linked with Edinson Cavani from Paris Saint-Germain and Nolito from Celta Vigo.
