Man Utd press on with interest in Basel striker Embolo

Manchester United have joined the race to sign Breel Embolo from FC Basel.

Swiss website 20 Minuten suggests that United are now showing significant interest in the 19-year-old striker and could soon make a bid for his services.

Emboli is already on the radar of Tottenham, Borussia Monchengladbach and RB Leipzig but is now attracting interest from Jose Mourinho and the Red Devils.

The teenager is currently with the Switzerland quad preparing for Euro2016 which kicks off this weekend. The Swiss play Albania in Lens on Saturday in their Group A opener.
