Tottenham Hotspur may have just received a huge boost in their chase for Fenerbahce striker, Vedat Muriqi, with the latest reports indicating that the Turkish giants are set to slash the star’s price due to the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Muriqi was linked with a move to Spurs during the January transfer window (Aksam) and the rumours have continued since then, with reports suggesting that the North Londoners will return for his services in the summer (Fanatik).

Recent reports from Turkey claimed that Spurs were prepared to offer €20 million for the 24-year-old while Fenerbahce were said to be holding out for around €25 million (Sabah via Sport Witness).

However, Askam now report (as relayed by Sport Witness) that the Turkish club are willing to accept just €15 million for the striker this summer due to low availability of funds around Europe as a result of the coronavirus.

The report asserts that Spurs now face competition from two unnamed Serie A clubs for the Kosovo international this summer.

This is likely to be the first of many such reports through the summer. Expect more clubs to drop their valuations of players as they get desperate the longer the transfer window goes on. That is why I believe that we are likely to see most of the transfers being done towards the end of the market this summer as there will be some great last-minute deals to be had. Needless to say, Levy will be rubbing his hands with glee at the prospect of pulling off last-minute bargains.
