The agent of Standard Liege striker Michy Batshuayi has confirmed Premier League interest.

Arsenal and Everton are keen on the 20 year-old centre-forward.

His agent Christophe Henrotay said: "There are Premier League clubs that are following him closely, but that's all. The interest from other big leagues is more serious.

"I'm still surprised by the way Standard communicates about Michy. The situation is very simple: if a club triggers his release clause, he can start negotiating with a club.

"I've the mandate to negotiate a transfer. At this moment there are no clubs that offered the full amount to trigger the clause. My player is still happy at Standard. For sure.

"But there's a lot of interest in him. It's getting hot. When a club decides to trigger his clause, it's up to Michy to decide."
