Tottenham Hotspur are keen to sign a striker in the summer transfer window.
Spurs have been tracking Marseille forward Michy Batshuayi for some time, and the 22-year-old is believed to remain the North London side’s first choice striking addition.
However, Tottenham realise that convincing Batshuayi to join could be a tough challenge, given the interest in him.
West Ham United are also hoping to sign Batshuayi, and they could be able to offer him first-team football - which Tottenham can’t.
Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring a new striker to Spurs who can provide cover for Harry Kane, rather than be the main man.
Embolo is believed to be a good fit, as the 19-year-old may be more willing to be handed a rotational role.
Embolo scored 12 goals for Basel this past season, and he also hit the back of the net for Switzerland for the first time.
Embolo has been scouted by Bayern Munich and Manchester United in recent times, so Spurs may not find it easy to sign the youngster if they do make a move.
