Report: Tottenham still keen on Fenerbahce star Vedat Muriqi

The player is expected to leave Turkey this summer.

Tottenham are still interested in signing man-mountain centre forward Vedat Muriqi, according to Turkish newspaper Sabah.

The 6ft 3in striker is currently at Fenerbahce where he has netted 17 goals and registered seven assists this season.

Jose Mourinho is keen to bolster his attacking options and could face competition from West Brom for his signature.

The 26-year-old was a target previously for Tottenham but a move never came to fruition.

Fenerbahce need to sell in order to spend this summer, with Sabah claiming they will accept £18 million for his services.

Mourinho is on the lookout for a capable understudy to Harry Kane, with the club short of competition for the England star.

Last season, the hotshot missed a large part of the season with a hamstring problem and that saw Tottenham struggle.

 

With that in mind landing Muriqi makes perfect sense, with the 23-cap Kosovo international providing a different option.

The talisman arrived at Fenerbahce from Rizespor and cost them just over £3 million.

As a result, they will still make a significant profit on their star man and Spurs could land themselves a steal.

If they are to break back into the top four, Mourinho will need his squad to boast more strength in depth next season.

Muriqi is, of course, unproven in the Premier League but he could do a similar job to that of Fernando Llorente when it comes to holding the ball up.

He is a similar type of player to the former Spurs man and also boasts lethal finishing qualities and is a beast in the air.
