Michy Batshuayi says the Premier League is an attractive proposition amid interest from Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United.

The Belgium striker has been in excellent form for Ligue 1 side Marseille over the course of the 2015/16 Ligue 1 campaign.

Batshuayi scored an incredible 17 goals in 36 top-flight games for l’OM in their Ligue 1 season which has attracted interest from the Premier League.

The 22-year-old is part of Marc Wilmots’s side for Euro 2016 as the Red Devils look to win their first major tournament.

However, the Marseille star was tight-lipped on talk of a move to Tottenham or West Ham, insisting that his future wouldn’t be decided until after Euro 2016.

“I don’t think about that, I prefer to concentrate 100 per cent on the Euros. Then we will see what happens,” Batshuayi told Sky Sports.

“Everybody likes the Premier League. It has a lot of spectacle, a lot of goals and many good players. It is natural that every good player is attracted by that league.”

Tottenham relied heavily upon Harry Kane to score their goals in the 2015/16 season after a return of 25 goals in 37 Premier League games.
