Batshuayi deal dead but these two on?

Batshuayi deal dead but these two on?


The Mirror have reported that Spurs are set to abandon their interest in Michy Batshuayi, but are in talks over the signings of two other strikers.

Batshuayi is rated at £31m by Marseille and is said to want wages of £100,000-a-week. Tottenham are reluctant to do business at that price – as are West Ham – but Marseille are refusing to lower their valuation.

Spurs have instead moved their sights towards the 20-year old Roma striker Antonio Sanabria, who has just enjoyed a successful season on loan at Sporting Gijon last season where he scored 11 goals.

The Mirror claim that Tottenham are in talks with Roma over the £11.5m signing of Sanabria, though other outlets claim that terms have been agreed with the Serie A side and the player is deciding between a move to White Hart Lane or Barcelona.

In addition to Sanabria, Spurs are said to still be in talks to sign Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar for a fee of around £12m.

Tottenham really need two strikers this summer to have cover and competition for Harry Kane. If they can bring in this highly-rated young pair of forwards for less than Batshuayi would cost on his own, it surely looks like good business.


  1. I think Bats has priced himself out of contention, or his club have. He can’t even get onto the pitch for Belgium at the moment either with Lukaku and Origi, possibly Benteke too, ahead of him. Think the problem is Marseille want 30 grand desperately and just can’t see Levy paying that. To make matters worse he seems to think we can pay him 100 grand a week – does he think we’re owned by the russian mafia? Janssen and Sanabria will do nicely though.

  2. @Whitehotlane: I think that’s 30 million you’re on about there. Agree with comments though, Janssen and Sanabria would be fine additions to the side, at the right price. However, OM need to sell soon by all accounts and Baty is reported to prefer Spurs which could be right up Levy’s street. At the moment though it’s all talk, even Wanyama hasn’t been officially announced and he’s just put a deposit down on a house near Tottenham! We’ll have to wait and see I think.

  3. Can we just get to August already? I hate the transfer window ???
    I hope we get one CF and one striker whatever they’re called along with big victor and Witsel, then ship out Carroll chadli and mason,. If only it was that easy eh! COYS
