Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Vedat Muriqi.
According to Fanatik, Tottenham Hotspur are ready to meet Fenerbahce’s £22 million asking price for striker Vedat Muriqi.
The current Covid-19 virus has prompted a suspension to football at elite European level.
But that hasn’t stopped teams looking ahead to the summer transfer window with Tottenham seemingly keen to bolster their squad under Jose Mourinho.
Spurs were accredited with an interest in Muriqi last month (Sporx).
But now, reports in Fanatik claim Tottenham are pushing ahead with their interest and are ready to meet Fenerbahce’s asking price for him.
It is said Spurs have the financial might to see off Serie A side Lazio for his signature, while the North London club are seeking possible alternatives to Harry Kane.
Muriqi had been one of the best players in Turkey prior to the suspension.
The 25-year-old striker scored 21 goals in 41 appearances in all competitions, while also posting six assists.
Muriqi stands at 6ft 4inch. Aside from his goal threat, he is a big presence upfront who can bully defenders, hold up the ball and bring his teammates into play.
The Kosovo international only joined Fenerbahce last summer following a 25-goal campaign at fellow Turkish side Caykur Rizespor.
It appears Muriqi is ready to move on to a top European club such as the Premier League, and Spurs boss Mourinho may find he is an ideal candidate for his physical style of football.
