Reports are out claiming that Liverpool legend Steve Nicol believes a deal for Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi is close.
Nicol reckons Batshuayi will replace Christian Benteke at Liverpool this summer.
“He’s young, scoring goals in Ligue 1 – which doesn’t always translate into the Premier League,” Nicol said.
“He’s an up and coming player, he’s an international, he’s only 22, he’s got ability, and he scores goals.
“I think there’s a good possibility he goes to Liverpool over Spurs.
“I think there’s a good chance this kid goes to Liverpool as one Belgian will go out in Benteke, and another will come in, in Batshuayi.”
Arsenal and Tottenham are also said to be keem on the Belgium international star.
