Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino previously revealed his intentions to sign another striker in order to ease some pressure on star man Harry Kane.

Aside from Embolo, he is also keeping an eye on Marseille forward Michy Batshuayi, but rival interest in the Belgian is strong.

Manchester United were amongst the clubs monitoring Embolo’s situation, but interest in his services has cooled as they turn their attentions to a world class attacker.

The Switzerland international featured 40 times in all competitions for his side this past term, scoring a total of 13 goals while providing another nine assists.
