Basel star Breel Embolo, 19, has been linked with a move to Manchester United

Manchester United are in for Basel’s 19-year-old sensation Breel Embolo, according to reports.

The Switzerland striker bagged 13 goals last season and is thought to have already turned down a £21million offer from Bundesliga side Wolfsburg in January.

Now Swiss website 20 Minutes claim contact has been made between the Cameroon-born Embolo’s representatives and Old Trafford chiefs.

Embolo has already been heavily linked to RB Leipzig as well as Tottenham and Borussia Monchengladbach.

But now this season’s Switzerland Super League winner has apparently caught the attention of Jose Mourinho, who previously signed Mohamed Salah from Basel.

Embolo may not be a household name in England but he is with the Switzerland side in France for Euro 2016.

And Basel captain Marco Streller said: “My heart cheers when I see him playing.”

Embolo is described as a powerful, quick striker who is quick to win over the hearts of fans.

However, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s signing appearing imminent and the talents of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford at his disposal, Embolo’s arrival is anything but certain.
