Speaking to Belgian newspaper Nieuwsblade, Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi has responded to claims he will be sold this summer.

Marseille coach Franck Passi, who once played for Bolton, was quoted by SkySports earlier this month stating Batshuayi will leave the club.

Passi said: "Everyone knows he's leaving. I think it's included in the budget that Michy will probably be transferred this summer."

Batshuayi however is taking nothing for granted as he continues his preparation for Euro 2016.

He said when quizzed on Passi's comments: "It is not certain that I leave at Marseille, everything is still possible, even though it was a disappointing season.

"I was often decisive, but we just lost too many matches."

Batshuayi has been strongly linked with a switch to the Premier League, with The Times reporting just yesterday that Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino plans to bid for him shortly, having been impressed by his display in the French Cup final at the weekend.

Batshuayi is also on the radar of West Ham manager Slaven Bilic, with The Sun reporting last month that he is a priority transfer target for them, and hope he can join former Marseille teammate Dimitri Payet at the club.

The striker scored 23 goals in all competitions for Marseille this past season, with 17 coming in Ligue 1.
