The agent of reported Tottenham Hotspur target Vedat Muriqi says “a bid will come” from Britain for his client, as reported by Turkish outlet Fanatik.
Jose Mourinho’s Spurs have reportedly got their sights on the Fenerbahce striker, who has registered 15 goals and six assists in all competitions this season thus far (Transfermarkt).
There appears to be a lot of interest in Muriqi’s signature stemming from the January transfer window, with Tottenham being joined by Aston Villa and Leicester City in the hunt for his services, according to Turkish Football.
Calciomercato, meanwhile, speculated that Italian side Lazio have also thrown their name in the hat for the Kosovo international, as well as Premier League duo Burnley and Manchester United.
According to Fanatik, Spurs have already proposed a £22million deal for Muriqi, while the same editorial claims the player wants to move to North London.
When asked whether the 26-year-old is specifically wanting a move to Tottenham, Lazio or Napoli, Haluk Canatar told Fanatik: “I will not approve of this question.
“The official request from Britain will come. The official request from Italy will come. I know it will come, but I cannot name the club.”
Muriqi is noted for his strength and aerial ability, and he would be an asset for Spurs, a tall, imposing attacking target who could be utilised in a manner similar to Fernando Llorente.
Former Tottenham director Damien Comolli deemed the 6ft 4in ace good enough to play for “any team in England” (beIN Sports Turkey), and it seems as though Spurs are still in the running for the player.
