North London pair Arsenal, Tottenham to fight for Basel youngster Embolo

Arsenal and Tottenham are both believed to be keeping tabs on FC Basel starlet Breel Embolo.


The North London rivals have joined West Ham United in their pursuit of the 18-year-old, who reportedly knocked back a £9million move to Borussia Monchengladbach on the summer.

Despite the interest, Embolo has told Swiss publication Blick he is happy at Basel for the time being.

"I decided for FC Basel. I did not want to go away at last minute away because I want to develop myself here," Embolo said.
