Can This 22-year Old Be A Good Alternate To Harry Kane At Tottenham

Published

on

Tottenham might be feeling the heat at this stage of the season as their hopes for a Premier League title rests on the shoulders of Harry Kane. The English striker has banged in 21 goals in the league this season but hasn’t really received a lot of support when it comes to the goal scoring load.

Spurs might still be in second place but if Kane was to go out injured for a long time or even go cold in front of goal, they would be in a lot of problems trying to crack down defences. Tottenham haven’t got someone who can score the goals when needed but they could well have found someone who can do that.

Michy Batshuayi has been one of the brightest players for more than a season now and with many suitors keeping a track of his exploits in Marseille, it only is a matter of time before he makes it into the Premier League, if the right money is paid for him.

From Marseille to London

Batshuayi is only 22-year-old but has already become an integral part of the Ligue 1 team. The Belgian has scored 18 goals in 42 appearances for the French side this season and also has bagged nine assists to go along with his goal scoring tally.

Michy is an out and out striker, though he has the pace to play out wide, he has the tendency to cut in and take a shot on goal. The Belgian does have special qualities up front and is known to run and do quick one-twos with his teammates.

Batshuayi might be built well but he isn’t great in the air either and that could be a great problem if he is to play in the Premier League. The 22-year-old also does not do much tracking back and that could be a problem for Mauricio Pochettino if he is to sign up for Tottenham.

The good thing about Michy is that he is young and will obviously get better as he gets older. The Belgian might not be the best striker in Ligue 1 but he does have a lot of potential and the way players have developed under the Argentine at Spurs, Batshuayi could well turn into one of the best strikers in the world.

Belgium have a great crop of players currently and Michy is certainly one of them. It will be interesting to see if Spurs are willing to shell for this prodigy.
