An absence of a Harry Kane back-up was a prominent problem for Spurs this season and one striker who continues to be linked with the club is Fenerbahce striker, Vedat Muriqi.

The 26-year-old was reported to be a target for Spurs during the January transfer window (Turkish TV Channel A Spor) and he is once again said to be on the radar of the North London club this summer (Aspor).

Turkish newspaper Sabah (as relayed by Sport Witness) now reports that Fenerbahce are willing to sell the striker due to their precarious financial situation.

It is claimed that the club need to sell Muriqi in order to be able to sign their transfer targets due to the Turkish Football Federation’s tough spending rules.

The Kosovo international is reportedly wanted by Tottenham, Napoli and Lazio, with the Turkish giants willing to sell him to the highest bidders.

The report also asserts that Fenerbahce will accept any offer of around €20million (£18.2m) for the striker.

Spurs Web Opinion

Most sources linking us with Muriqi seem to be coming from Turkey. Journalists close to Tottenham do not seem to be indicating that the Fenerbahce man is one of our main targets this summer. I suspect we were looking at Muriqi during January when we were in a desperate need for a striker and there were not many available. Reports seem to indicate that we might be focussing our efforts on likes of Arkadiusz Milik and M’Baye Niang instead this summer.
