BREAKING NEWS: Schalke swoop for Swiss star Embolo


Schalke have signed Switzerland striker Breel Embolo from Basel after the teenager's impressive show at Euro 2016.

Embolo, 19, had been widely expected to join a club in Europe's major leagues ahead of the 2016-17 campaign, having scored 13 goals in 40 games in all competitions for Basel last term.

Comfortable up front or on either wing, Embolo was used predominantly as an impact substitute by Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic at Euro 2016, though he started their final Group A game against hosts France.
