Tottenham, West Ham target Batshuayi intent on making 'lasting impression' at Marseille

Michy Batshuayi has revealed he has no intention of leaving Ligue 1 outfit Marseille any time in the near future, despite interest from a host of Premier League clubs.

Tottenham and West Ham United are believed to be among those hoping to lure the 22-year-old striker to the Premier League, but it appears as though Batshuayi is happy in France for now.

"In the corridors of the Velodrome, there are pictures of [Jean-Pierre] Papin, [Alen] Boksic, [Didier] Drogba," Batshuayi told French magazine Journal du Dimanche.

"They deserve to be there. Given my current level, I do not associate myself with them.

"I am not too happy with myself as I lack consistency.

"I have fallen in love with this club, I can never leave without making a lasting impression.

"That's why I extended my contract recently."
