Everton ready to pay £7m for Arsenal striker target

Everton are planning a £7million bid for Arsenal target Michy Batshuayi, according to the Sunday People.

The Standard Liege striker has been heavily linked with a Premier League move this month, after his agent sounded him out for a transfer.

“The situation is simple," explained Christophe Henrothay. "If a club triggers his release clause, he can sit down and start negotiating with them.”

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is credited with an interest in bringing the 20-year-old to the Emirates Stadium, as his search for a back-up to Olivier Giroud continues during the January window.

However, Arsenal are at risk of missing out on Batshuayi, as Roberto Martinez weighs up an attempt to lure the talented Belgian to Goodison Park.

With Romelu Lukaku currently on loan with the Toffees for the remainder of the campaign, you'd assume that Batshuayi would link up well with his compatriot, as the Merseyside club continue their push towards Champions League qualification.

Borussia Dortmund have also been mooted as admirers of the in-demand striker, but - like Arsenal - will have to move to quickly, if they are to beat Everton to Batshuayi's signature.
