Now it is looking increasingly likely that Tottenham will not be signing him at all, but rather he will be heading to Germany in a surprise switch to RB Leipzig.

Spurs need striking reinforcements to help back up Harry Kane – but it appears Embolo has no desire to be anyone’s backup. A move to Leipzig would certainly prove that.
