The much talked about Belgium Under-21 international has been in sensational form in front of goal so far this season for the Belgium league leaders, so much so that a number of big-name clubs have all been linked with the 20-year-old of late, including the likes of Arsenal, Spurs and Everton.
However, Standard chairman Roland Duchatelet has now come to confirm that Tottenham have not made any contact with him regarding a move for his star man, leaving the way now clear for the Gunners to make their own move for the striker.
“There’s no interest from Tottenham as far as I know,” Duchatelet said.
“I’ve talked to the strong man of Spurs (chairman Daniel Levy) on Thursday and he has confirmed to me that they don’t want to sign Batshuayi.”
The player himself recently claimed that: “If you ask my favourite team, I’ll say Arsenal.”
