Turkish publication Takvim Sport (via Sport Witness) reported that Tottenham Hotspur sent their scouts to watch Kosovo striker Vedat Muriqi in action against England on Tuesday night.

The Three Lions ended up 5-3 winners with Muriqi getting on the scoresheet from the penalty spot in the second half.

The Fenerbahce striker also impressed with his hold up play and constantly troubled the England backline. Muriqi’s hold up play certainly caught the eye in a game in which the striker was feeding on scraps.

The Daily Mail reported that Spurs’ head scout Steve Hitchen was left impressed with the 25-year-old’s performance.

Turkish publication, Fotospor now report that Fenerbahce now fear losing the striker amidst interest from Tottenham and have already begun plans to improve his contract despite signing Muriqi just this summer.

The report claims that the Turkish giants might insert a release clause of €50m in order to ward off interest from other clubs.
