Club president happy with striker being linked to Tottenham and Man United

Tottenham Hotspur could certainly do with some back-up in the striker department this season, with Harry Kane being the only senior player in that position at the club.

Teenager, Troy Parrott, is in top form so far this campaign, but Pochettino seems unlikely to throw the youngster in at the deep end any time soon.

Spurs decided to sell Vincent Janssen in the summer and also waved goodbye to their Champions League hero, Fernando Llorente.

Llorente has since joined Napoli on a free and scored in the Champions League yet again, getting revenge on Liverpool in a 2-0 win.

With their striker shortage, Spurs have been linked with in-form Kosovo and Fenerbahce forward, Vedat Muriqi in the past month.

The Express reported that Spurs and Man United are both keen on the 25-year-old, and one club president is certainly excited by these rumours.

After Fenerbahce paid just £3.1m for the striker from Caykur Rizespor, Muriqi’s former club will receive 15% of his sell-on value, which has club president Hasan Kartal smiling (Haberler).

He said (Haberler): “When Vedat showed up at Rizespor, he was a great player. He came to us and he represented Rizespor in the best way. Now he’s sweating of the success of Fenerbahce. I believe that Vedat will be very successful.”

“The rumoured proposals and interest from Europe makes us very happy. If he goes from Fenerbahce, as mentioned, to another club in Europe, we will receive 15% of the fee. That makes us very happy, but my request is that his name is remembered at Fenerbahce.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

If Spurs could get this guy for under £20m, it would certainly be a great buy for the Lilywhites. He looked good against England this month and seems to be making waves for Fenerbahce, with Spurs needing a decent back-up to Kane.
