Tottenham, West Ham target Batshuayi quiet on Marseille future

Michy Batshuayi chose to place his priority on his country rather than club future on Wednesday.

The Belgian striker was speaking at a pre-match press conference ahead of his nation's Euro2016 clash with the Republic of Ireland on Saturday when he played down suggestions he could be leaving Marseille this summer.

The 22-year-old is a firm target for both Tottenham and West Ham United but could shed no light on whether or not he would be making his way to London following the UEFA tournament in France.

"About my personal future, I'd rather not talk now, I focus me completely at the European Championships," he said.

Batshuayi is hoping to gain a start in Belgium's second Group E which takes place in Bordeaux.
