Football: Marseille Sign Batshuayi's Younger Brother
MARSEILLE, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 23th july, 2016) - Marseille have moved to fill the void left by the sale of Michy Batshuayi by signing the Belgium striker's younger brother Aaron Leya Iseka from Anderlecht. Leya Iseka, 18, will join the French side on a season-long loan, according to local media.
The forward missed most of the past season with a serious knee injury but scored 13 goals in 15 games for Anderlecht in the UEFA Youth League between 2013 and 2015.
Batshuayi, 22, was Marseille's leading scorer last season with 17 league goals before joining Premier League giants Chelsea earlier this month for a reported 40 million Euros ($44.4 million). Marseille are looking to rebuild after finishing a lowly 13th last term, the club's worst campaign since 2000-2001.
