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.
Hay acuerdo entre Tottenham- Roma por Tony Sanabria (15 millones euros). Pero ojo, aún NO firmó. El jugador decidirá entre Barcelona y Spurs

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.
