Man United and Liverpool to do battle for Swiss phenomenon

Tom Victor

Teenage Swiss striker Breel Embolo is on the radar of Manchester United and Liverpool, but they’ll have to act quickly.

The 18-year-old, who scored 17 goals for FC Basel last season, is the subject of an £18m bid from Wolfsburg according to CalcioMercato.

Embolo, who has seven caps for Switzerland and is in contention for their Euro 2016 squad, is also thought to be on the radar of Everton.

He played in Basel’s draw at Anfield last season which eliminated Liverpool from the Champions League, but it is unclear whether the Reds had been monitoring him before Jurgen Klopp’s arrival.
