Wolfsburg have reportedly had a 27million euros bid for FC Basel striker Breel Embolo rejected, amid claims the Swiss side are expecting Premier League interest for the teenager in the summer.
The 18-year-old has attracted interest from Europe’s big boys with a string of impressive displays for the Swiss giants and has also been linked with moves to Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham in recent months.
He was also the subject of our weekly Scout feature last month, which looks at up-and-coming talents in the world game.
But with Bas Dost facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines, Wolfsburg made a move for Embolo.
Kicker report the €27m offer was rejected with Basel determined to keep their prized asset until the summer at least.
It is thought Wolfsburg will now turn their attention to Lyon striker and Newcastle target, Alexandre Lacazette.
