Tottenham Hotspur are all set to make an offer of €20 million for Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi when the transfer market reopens in the summer, according to latest reports from Turkey.
Muriqi was linked with a move to Tottenham during the January window as the club attempted to bring in a striker to replace the injured Harry Kane (Aksam).
However, the Kosovo international ended up staying put at Fenerbahce while the Lilywhites failed in their quest to sign a striker before the close of the transfer window.
A back up to Kane is said to be one of Jose Mourinho’s priorities in the summer (Football Insider) and Turkish publication Takvim (as relayed by Sport Witness) claim that the Spurs boss feels Muriqi will be an ideal fit for the role.
It is said that Fenerbahce might be forced into selling the 25-year-old due to their difficult financial situation with the Lilywhites are ready to test their resolve.
Apart from Spurs, Leicester City, Burnley and Newcastle are also said to be keen on landing the centre forward (the Express).

I believe Muriqi fits the profile of what we need, given his areal prowess and proficiency in holding the ball up. However, one wonders why we didn’t complete the deal in January even if it meant that we might have had to pay a little extra. Our failure to sign a striker in January looks like it is going to end up costing us a place in the Champions League next season.
