Report: Spurs scouting Marseille's Michy Batshuayi, Leicester defender Ben Chilwell targeted

Marseille Velodrome

Tottenham are reportedly monitoring Marseille's Michu Batshuayi and Leicester's Ben Chilwell.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham scouts have been watching Marseille hitman Michy Batshuayi, as well as Leicester City teenager Ben Chilwell.

Spurs have enjoyed a superb start to the campaign and are currently unbeaten in their last 14 Premier League games, with Mauricio Pochettino's side on the fringes of the top four.

A Champions League place would be great for Spurs, but they may need some extra firepower if they are to do it, with little depth behind Harry Kane in attack.

Another centre forward would help ease the burden on Kane, and the Daily Mail report that Tottenham have sent scouts to France in order to watch Marseille goal machine Michy Batshuayi.

The 22-year-old Belgian international has smashed 12 goals in just 21 games for Marseille this season, whilst two goals in two substitute appearances for the Belgium national team mean he is knocking on the door for a place at Euro 2016, offer competition for Christian Benteke, Romelu Lukaku and Divock Origi.

With pace, power and finishing ability, Batshuayi could be the ideal complement to Harry Kane, but Marseille are unlikely to want to sell him without a fight, considering that they lost the likes of Andre Ayew, Dimitri Payet, Andre-Pierre Gignac and Giannelli Imbula over the summer.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail also report that Spurs have been scouting Leicester City teenager Ben Chilwell, with manager Pochettino potentially looking to add yet another young English talent to his ranks.

With the likes of Kane, Eric Dier and Dele Alli all thriving at White Hart Lane, Tottenham are bound to become even more appealing to young English players, who know they will be given chances to shine under Pochettino.

Now, Chilwell could be the latest target for Spurs, having impressed on loan at Huddersfield Town. The 18-year-old, who has come up through the ranks at the King Power Stadium, can play at left back or centre back, and is considered to be one of England's brightest young defenders.

Spurs aren't the only team interested, as it's stated that Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United also have an interest in Chilwell, but Spurs will be hoping that Pochettino's work with youngsters can give them the upper hand.
