Report: Tottenham scouts watched Michy Batshuayi score in cup final on Saturday

Marseille Velodrome

Spurs scouts reportedly watched Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi in action on Saturday.

According to Mercato 365, Tottenham Hotspur scouts were in attendance at the Stade de France on Saturday evening as Marseille lost 4-2 to Paris Saint-Germain in the Coupe de France final.

After PSG coasted to the Ligue 1 title, they were looking to fend off rivals Marseille in the Coupe de France final, and came through the game with flying colours.

Blaise Matuidi's opener for PSG was cancelled out by an equaliser from Newcastle loanee Florian Thauvin, but two goals from Zlatan Ibrahimovic either side of an Edinson Cavani strike put PSG 4-1 up.

Michy Batshuayi bagged a late consolation for Marseille, but PSG's dominance of French football continued on Saturday evening- and it seems that Spurs were there to see it.

Mercato 365 claim that Spurs scouts were in attendance at the Stade de France to see Marseille striker Batshuayi in action, and they may have been pleased to see him find the net yet again.

The Belgian hitman, 22, has been one of the most impressive young strikers in Europe this season, and his goal on Saturday was his 24th of the campaign.

With Marseille in financial trouble - hence allowing Andre-Pierre Gignac, Andre Ayew, Dimitri Payet, Florian Thauvin and Giannelli Imubla to leave the club last summer - it's now believed that Batshuayi will also depart this summer, and Spurs are near the front of the queue.

Having watched him yet again on Saturday, Spurs appear to be ready to make their move for Batshuayi, and may hope to get a deal done well before Euro 2016 begins, where Batshuayi will have the chance to impress with Belgium.
