Reports from Turkey indicate that Fenerbahce are in negotiations for a replacement for striker Vedat Muriqi, who has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham.

Multiple reports from Turkey over the last couple of weeks have indicated that the striker could be Tottenham bound this summer.

Fotomac (via Sport Witness) reported late last month that Tottenham were stepping up their chase for Muriqi after failing to land him in the January transfer window.

While reports initially suggested that the 24-year-old is available for around €25 million (Sabah), Fenerbahce are said to have reduced their asking price and are now prepared to accept around just €15million for the striker’s services (Askam).

The Kosovan international is said to be keen to join Spurs and link up with Jose Mourinho (Fanatik via Sport Witness).

Ajansspor journalist Ekrem Konur has now taken to social media to reveal that Fenerbahce are interested in signing Reading striker George Puscas as a replacement for Muriqi.

He claimed the Turkish giants are in negotiations for the striker and that the deal could be a loan with an option to buy.

Spurs Web Opinion

The Turkish media isn’t usually too reliable when it comes to transfer speculation but the sheer number of reports from various outlets suggesting that Muriqi is Spurs bound suggests that there is some truth to the speculation. The 24-year-old certainly fits the bill of what Jose usually looks for in his target men.
