Harry Kane was on the scoresheet again for England in their last Euro qualification game against Kosovo as the Three Lions thumped the visitors 5-3.

While the Spurs forward put in a typically industrious and competent performance, according to reporters there was another striker involved in the game whose performance was of interest to Tottenham.

Turkish publication Takvim Sport (via Sport Witness) reported that Tottenham Hotspur sent their scouts to run the rule over Kosovo striker Vedat Muriqi.

The Fenerbahce striker got on the score sheet from the penalty spot and constantly troubled Harry McGuire and Micheal Keane at the back for England.

Muriqi’s hold up play certainly caught the eye in a game in which the striker was feeding on scraps.

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

The report claims that the Lilywhites could make a move for the striker in January to give them more options up front.
