West Ham face competition from Tottenham for attacking sensation


West Ham will face stiff competition if they are to sign striking target Michy Batshuayi this summer, with The Express claiming that both Tottenham and Juventus are keen to sign the Marseille man also.

The Hammers are in the market for a new centre forward to take the team to the next level, with plenty of reports in the last weeks that the Belgium international has been identified as the preferred option.

Batshuayi has grown in stature since moving to the Stade Velodrome from Standard Liege and has scored 14 Ligue 1 goals this season for the south coast club.

The 22-year-old is also expected to be in Marc Wilmots’ Belgium squad for this summer’s Euro 2016 tournament, where he will be given a chance to show the world just how good he is.

However, a bidding war for Batshuayi’s services could well be set to ensue, with Spurs and Juve also keeping tabs on the gifted youngster.
