Arsenal are known for signing quality players and this time again they have targeted one of the most brilliant performers in the Belgian league. The youngster with 20 years of age has 14 goals to his name already. Isn’t it exciting how Arsenal target such lethal talent every now and then?
Michy Batshuayi has been one of the most impressive performers in the Belgian Pro League.
The Gunners scouts were recently in Liege to watch Batshuayi in action and their interest has been confirmed by the Belgian club’s president Roland Duchatelet.
“What is new is the interest of Arsenal, although Arsenal are just one of many clubs who are chasing our striker Michy,” he said.
And Batshuayi has admitted he plans to leave his current club as soon as next season and is hoping he can make a switch to either the Premier League or Bundesliga.
He said: “I don’t think I think will be playing in Belgium next season. My parents, especially my dad, think I’m ready for the next step. This summer there was some interest, but I decided I didn’t want to leave Standard without leaving a trace – being champion or being top scorer. I’ve two dreams clubs in Europe – Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund.”
