Everton target Michy Batshuayi set for Marseille move

The Mirror is reporting that Everton are set to miss out on the signing of Standard Liege striker Michy Batshuayi.

The Belgian has been tracked by a number of Premier League clubs and was reportedly subject of a bid from Everton in the summer.

However, the newspaper is reporting that the 20 year old is now close to agreeing a move to Olympique Marseille, with him rumoured to be a top target for manager Marcelo Bielsa.

The striker has 49 goals in 128 games for Standard, and already has five goals in 12 appearance for Belgiums under-21 side. He comes from the same academy as Christian Benteke, and has recently been involved in a legal tug-of-war between agents as he tried to secure a move away from Liege.
