Everton boss Roberto Martinez is closing in on Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi to boost his top-four hopes, writes Alan Nixon in the Sunday People.
Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund have been linked with the 20-year-old Standard Liege star. But the Goodison club are ready to offer the £7million it takes to trigger a transfer clause in Batshuayi's contract.
If Martinez gets his man, it will clear the way for Hull target Nikica Jelavic's exit.
Batshuayi's agent Christophe Henrothay, who has strong links with the Toffees through other players, said: "The situation is simple. If a club triggers his release clause, he can sit down and start negotiating with them."
