According to Fanatik, West Bromwich Albion are keen to sign reported Tottenham Hotspur target Vedat Muriqi and want to sell players to help raise funds.

The striker only joined Fenerbahce from Caykur Rizespor last summer.

But after netting 21 goals this term following a 25-goal haul last season, Muriqi could be set for a swift summer exit with several suitors eyeing a deal.

According to A Spor, Tottenham in recent days saw a £4.5 million bid turned down.

Spurs are keen to bolster their attacking options this summer. The injury to Harry Kane has left Jose Mourinho’s side short of quality upfront.

Tottenham’s offer, however, is seemingly way short of Fenerbahce’s value.

Fanatik claim the Turkish club will only open negotiations starting at £17.5 million.



West Brom, who currently lie second in the Championship, may be looking at Muriqi for the Premier League.

The Baggies are said to be wanting to offload players to help raise cash to sign the 6ft 4inch striker.

Slaven Bilic has experience working in Turkey. The West Brom boss was in charge of Besiktas between 2013-15, with Muriqi at the time playing in the second tier.

The Kosovo international scored 21 goals in 57 games for Giresunspor, prompting a transfer to the Turkish Super League in 2016 with Genclerbirligi.

Bilic may have been aware of his talents back then. Now, the Croatian is bidding to bring him to the Hawthorns this summer, but he surely won’t leave on the cheap.
