Tottenham should reignite interest in striker Breel Embolo

Tottenham fringe player Vincent Janssen is reportedly being lined up by German club Schalke this summer.

According to the Sun, Schalke are reviving interest in the 25-year-old attacker after failing with a loan bid in January.

It is understood that teams in Belgium and China have also expressed an interest in him.

The report details that the German club are eyeing another move and Spurs will grant his exit for a lot less than the £12million they wanted for him in January.

Janssen’s exit would come as no surprise if it takes place this summer, while Fernando Llorente will depart when his contract expires at the end of June.

It will leave the North London club desperately in need of a new striker to play a back-up role to talisman Harry Kane.

The Mirror reported in 2017 that Embolo was a target for Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino, but he’s stayed with Schalke since he joined in 2016.

Spurs should reignite interest in him this summer and try tempt him to the Premier League.

Embolo is a striker with brilliant pace and power, something that could see him be a good fit for English football.

The 22-year-old would make a great understudy to Kane in the central striker role, but he’s also proven he’s got the versatility to play out wide too.

He’s been directly involved in 21 goals in 61 senior games for Schalke and is still a promising talent with plenty of room to improve.

Embolo has been capped at senior level by Switzerland 32 times already at his young age and is someone Pochettino should place back on his transfer radar.
