Breel Embolo: Forward is a target for a host of clubs across Europe

Premier League clubs could face a fight to sign Breel Embolo after Wolfsburg confirmed their interest in the Basel forward.

Embolo was linked with Arsenal and Tottenham after impressing for Switzerland against England last month, while Aston Villa and Everton are also believed to be watching the 18-year-old.

However Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs has confirmed the Bundesliga side are tracking the attacker.

“We are not making a secret out of it that we are keeping a close eye on Embolo,” Allofs told Kicker.

“And we will continue to monitor his progress.”

Wolfsburg reportedly had a bid Embolo, who is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in Europe, turned down in August.

Born in Cameroon, Embolo has scored 16 goals in 32 starts for Basel, and has been capped five times by Switzerland.
