The Swiss international striker has been linked with a move to Spurs.

FC Basel president Bernhard Heusler has insisted that Tottenham Hotspur have not yet made any move for their star striker Breel Donald Embolo.

Spurs have been linked with a move for the player recently but Heusler insists there is currently no indication that he will be moving to White Hart Lane.

He is quoted as telling Blick:

"I cannot confirm that (Spurs have bid for Embolo). From Tottenham no offer exists, and there is currently no indication that Breel’ s path leads in this direction.

“It is one of many rumors that are currently scattered. "

Embolo was linked with a move to Tottenham earlier this week. The Sun reported that Spurs were preparing a £20 million move for the player, with the 19-year-old considered one of European football’s top young talents.

The Swiss international, whose Euro 2016 hopes have been put in doubt because of an injury picked up at the weekend, has been linked with a host of top clubs over the past few years but Spurs interest would make sense.

Tottenham need a new striker this summer to help out Harry Kane – who has carried the goals coring burden alone for much of this season.

Whether or not a bid is forthcoming for Embolo we will have to wait and see. But as far as Basel are currently concerned he will be going nowhere.
