Schalke 04 has pipped Manchester United and Tottenham, to the signing of Breel Embolo. As the BuLi club announced the signing of the teenager.
The 19-year-old Switzerland international scored 13 goals for Basel last season. He has now signed a five-year-deal with Schalke for an undisclosed fee.
The striker was coveted by a number of top European clubs, with Manchester United and Tottenham looking to sign him. Basel reportedly rejected a €27 million bid for Embolo from Wolfsburg.
However, he has now brought all speculation over his future to an end by agreeing to join Schalke ahead of the 2016-17 campaign.
Schalke finished fifth in the Bundesliga last season, accuring 52 points from 34 games.
