The talented striker has been linked with a move away from Marseille for months now, as the Ligue 1 are desperate for funds, therefore ready to cash in on their prized talent.
Striker is hit property
Palace reportedly lodged a bid in the last week, said to be just over £31million, but were quickly rebuffed by Batshauyi, who is said to be looking for European football. Hence, Chelsea's interest, as manager Antonio Conte looks to strengthen his squad ahead of his debut season in London.
Still, Spurs have retained their interest all the way through the process, as Mauricio Pochettino looks to add more goals to his frontline, after Harry Kane struggled for support last season.
Alderweireld would like to see Michy at Spurs
Asked about the topic whilst at Euro 2016 with Belgium, Spurs defender Alderweireld said "yes of course", when posed with the question about whether or not he'd like his teammate to sign for Tottenham, adding "he has a lot of qualities".
One of the problems that has been mentioned when linking Batshuayi with Spurs is the fact that they only play one up front, and a man of his talent wouldn't be second choice, a problem as Pochettino already has the aforementioned Kane at his proposal.
Alderweireld admitted that this would be an issue, quipping "the problem is that at this position Tottenham already has Harry Kane", before noting that he's well aware that "there is a lot of interest in Batshuayi", possibly referring to the likely Chelsea deal.
