Pat Nevin has suggested that Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi could measure up to Tottenham goal-machine Harry Kane next campaign, report the Daily Star.
Kane’s meteoric rise to the summit of the footballing world was unprecedented. The recently turned 24-year-old has found the back of the net 94 times in the past three seasons for Tottenham, establishing himself as one of the best strikers in the planet.
During an interview with the Guardian, Antonio Conte hailed Kane as “a complete striker” and claimed that the Englishman is now worth as much as £100M.
Former Chelsea player Nevin, as the Daily Star report, has suggested that Batshuayi could find himself in the same bracket as Kane if he continues scoring at the rate that he did last season.
The Daily Star quote Nevin, who reveals: “At a goal for every 79 minutes he was on the field, he was well ahead of even Harry Kane last season! His current run is even more impressive and suggests very good things lie ahead.”
Watching Batshuayi during pre-season, you would have to agree that he has to be given more minutes on the field this term than he did last-time-around. He has all the tools to go right to the very top of the game.
