Arsenal plot move for £10m striking wonder-kid

Emirates Stadium side chase Swiss international.

Arsenal are reportedly keen on FC Basel forward Breel Embolo according to the Daily Express.

The 18-year-old Cameroon born Swiss international is already into his third season in the FC Basel first-team set-up and helped his side to a domestic double last season and is already a regular in Vladimir Petkovic’s national team squad and may come up against England this week.

Arsene Wenger opted against signing a single outfield player during the summer transfer window and recent reports of Danny Welbeck being laid up with a long-term injury that could keep out of action for as much as six months means the North London club are very short on options in the final third.

Wenger must now rely upon Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott as his chief options up front, with the Emirates Stadium side having thus far scored just three times in four Premier League fixtures, two of which came via own goals.

Breel Embolo scored 16 goals in all competitions last season and has already netted three times this term.
