AS Roma are the latest high-profile club that have joined the race to sign Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi, Il Corriere dello Sport has suggested.
The Giallorossi have been disappointed with Edin Dzeko’s performances at Stadio Olimpico, and they hope to offload the Bosnian in the summer and recruit a new centre forward.
Reports from Italy suggest that Michy Batshuayi has emerged as a top target for AS Roma, who could soon step up their interest.
The Giallorossi are likely to face stiff competition for the €25 million rated striker, who has become one of the most sought-after footballers in French Ligue 1.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino yesterday confirmed his interest in the Belgium international, while Juventus, Valencia, Stoke, Arsenal and few other top clubs are believed to be keen.
Michy Batshuayi, 22, has been one of just a couple of bright spots in an otherwise disappointing campaign for Marseille, netting 15 times in 34 league outings.
