Tottenham Hotspur want to sign Basel striker Breel Embolo, according to The Sun

Tottenham Hotspur are in the hunt to sign Basel striker Breel Embolo, according to The Sun.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has been relying on England striker Harry Kane throughout the 2015/16 Premier League campaign, with the 22-year-old the north London side’s only out-and-out centre-forward.

Tottenham had been linked with Arsenal target Alvaro Morata in recent days as Pochettino looks to address the imbalance in his Spurs squad just days after signing a new five-year deal at White Hart Lane.

According to The Sun, Spurs are planning a £20m bid for Basel striker Embolo after the Cameroon-born forward’s exceptional season in the Swiss Super League.

Embolo has scored 10 times in 25 top-flight appearances for the Swiss champions over the 2015/16 campaign to attract interest from some of Europe’s top clubs.
