Basel ace in Spurs move talk
[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Basel defender Fabian Schar has emerged as a possible summer target for Spurs with boss Mauricio Pochettino ready to offer £9million.
The 22-year-old is currently out in Brazil with Switzerland amid talk he is set to leave Basel and make the move to one of Europe's top leagues this summer.
Schar did not play in his country's 2-1 comeback win over Ecuador on Sunday but could come into the reckoning in Switzerland's second group game against France later and will have plenty of scouts watching if he does feature.
The centre-back has been a key player for Basel in their impressive recent campaigns in both the Champions and Europa League and is under contract there for another year, although the club do have an option of a further 12 months.
It is thought £9million would be enough to land him but Spurs may have to move quick with local rivals Arsenal and European champions Real Madrid also linked with him in recent weeks.
