Cape Town - Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi has remained coy on the possibility of a move to the Premier League, amid heavy interest in the Belgium international.

The 22-year-old enjoyed a brilliant season for the French club, with 24 goals in Ligue 1 seeing him linked with the likes of Tottenham and West Ham.

"I don't think about that, I prefer to concentrate 100 percent on the Euros. Then we will see what happens," Batshuayi told Sky Sports News HQ when asked if he could be on his way to the English top flight.

"Everybody likes the Premier League. It has a lot of spectacle, a lot of goals and many good players. It is natural that every good player is attracted by that league."

Batshuayi is currently with Beligum at their pre-Euro 2016 training camp, hoping to make the final 23-man squad. Belgium will face Italy, Republic of Ireland and Sweden in Group E of the tournament.
