Tottenham could snap up Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi for just €10m (£8.9m) according to the latest reports from Turkey with the striker’s price said to have been slashed due to the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Spurs have been heavily linked with a move for Muriqi over the past few weeks with Fanatik (via Sport Witness) suggesting that the Kosovan international is keen on making a move to North London and linking up with Jose Mourinho.

Despite previous reports suggesting that the 26-year-old could cost close to €20 million Fanatik (via Tribal Football), reports last week suggested that Tottenham had made an opening offer of just £4.5 million for the prolific marksman (Aspor).

It turns out that Spurs were right to test out the waters with a low opening offer as a report in Todofichajes (as relayed by Sports Mole) now reveals that the Turkish giants are ready to slash their price for the striker.

However, Fenerbahce are still said to be demanding £8.9m, which is double of what Spurs are said to have offered.

Meanwhile, Football.London’s Alasdair Gold has insisted that his sources have told him Muriqi is not on Tottenham’s radar this summer.

Spurs Web Opinion

The Turkish media is anything but reliable when it comes to transfer rumours and so we need to take these reports with a pinch of salt. I believe Muriqi would be a good fit for us as a back up to Harry Kane but it doesn’t seem as if he is our number one choice with the likes of Arkadiusz Milik and Josh King also likely to be available this summer.
