Tottenham target Vedat Muriqi compared to Bayern superstar Robert Lewandowski
Reported Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Vedat Muriqi is like Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.
That is the view of his Fenerbahce teammate Max Kruse, who reckons the Kosovo international shares similarities with the clinical Bundesliga hitman.
Muriqi has been linked with a move to Spurs this week (Sabah), with Mauricio Pochettino currently without another out-and-out striker to act as cover for Harry Kane following the departure of Fernando Llorente.
Troy Parrott is making good progress but seemingly still as work to do to convince the manager he can be a regular first-team squad member.
Speaking about the 25-year-old, who scored against England on Tuesday, Kruse is quoted by Sporx as saying: “He is very ambitious, very willing, very hardworking. I compare him to Lewandowski.
“I think he will be at Bayern in two or three seasons.”
Whether Spurs’ ‘interest’ will actually amount to anything remains to be seen, but Muriqi caught the eye against England and seems like he can be a handful, and Kruse’s comments are certainly intriguing.
At 6ft 4in, Muriqi is a greater physical presence than Lewandowski, but the Poland international striker is obviously one of Europe’s sharpest shooters, biggest aerial threats and most intelligent players with regards to movement in the box.
The outstanding 31-year-old has chalked up 198 goals in just 247 games for Bayern, so if Muriqi is anything like him then perhaps Spurs are onto a winner.
