Tottenham Hotspur are to be without Harry Kane until April at the earliest, as they announced earlier this month that the striker had to have surgery on his left hamstring.

This came as Kane overstretched to tap the ball home against Southampton, before the goal was disallowed for offside and Kane was forced to hobble down the tunnel.

It turned out that he had traded his normal ankle ligament problems for a ruptured tendon in his left hamstring, with an early April training return date given by Spurs.

With no other senior striker at the club, Lucas Moura and Heung Min Son have been filling in for Kane over the last couple of matches.

However, Aksam in Turkey now claim that Spurs contacted Fenerbahce after the Kane injury to enquire over striker Vedat Muriqi, with Burnley also making an offer.

Unfortunately, the Turkish side swiftly rejected the Tottenham advances. Muriqi has 10 goals and three assists in 16 games so far this season (TransferMarkt).
