Schalke signs Cameroon-born player Breel Embolo in a £20 million deal

Professional German association-football club Fußballclub Gelsenkirchen-Schalke 04 e. V., commonly known as FC Schalke 04 have signed Switzerland forward Breel Embolo from FC Basel on a five-year contract.

The Cameroon-born 19-year-old has attracted plenty of interest from across Europe but the Bundesliga side have made their move after his, and Switzerland’s, elimination from Euro 2016.

Embolo, who made four appearances in France, was part of the Swiss squad which was beaten on penalties at the last-16 stage by Poland on Saturday. Embolo has made a total of 90 appearances for FC Basel in all competitions since making his professional debut in March 2014.

The fee for Embolo has not been disclosed by either club but reports suggest it is in the region of 25 million euros (£20 million).
