Tottenham Hotspur have been lacking a long-term strike back-up for Harry Kane for a number of seasons now, ever since the academy man broke into the first-team.

Kane quickly displaced Roberto Soldado, who was unable to get up and running in North London. Vincent Janssen also found it tricky to hit the ground running in a Spurs shirt.

The nearest thing Tottenham have had to a true back-up was Fernando Llorente, although he was only truly at his best for the 2018/19 season before moving on.

Sabah now report that both Manchester United and Spurs are interested in the same striker, with both sending scouts to watch Fenerbahce’s Vedat Muriqi last weekend.

Juventus and Lazio are also said to be looking at the Kosovo centre-forward, although Fenerbahce are not planning on selling in the January window.

Muriqi is only 25, so could provide a long-term option for the Lilywhites in terms of a second-choice striker.
