Batshuayi Moves To The Top Of Juventus Transfer Wishlist
Thursday June 23 2016
The Belgian striker has caught the eye of the Bianconeri but has a high price tag attached to his name.
With Alvaro Morata planning to say his final goodbyes once the transfer window official opens, Juventus have already begun to list a number of potential replacements. At this moment, as per Premium Sport, the one name that has climbed to the top of their wishlist, is Marseille’s top scorer, Michy Batshuayi. The former Standard Liege striker is valued at around €40 million but the Bianconeri are only willing to spend up to €30 million for his services. It is being reported however that if Juventus were to increase their offer to €33 million, a deal could potentially be reached with Marseille.
The 22-year old Batshuayi came off one of the best seasons of his young career, scoring 17 goals and notching 9 assists for Marseille. He is currently a member of Belgium’s 23-man squad at the EURO.
