Rumoured Spurs target, Vedat Muriqi, has now revealed that he is open to staying at Fenerbahce and honouring his contract.
Muriqi has enjoyed a fine season for the Turkish giants, not just notching up an impressive tally of fifteen goals (transfermarkt.com), but also proving an asset with his hold up play and physical presence.
Therefore, it does not come as much of a surprise that the centre-forward has been linked with several English sides.
Tottenham have been installed as the favourites to land the Kosovo international (Sabah), with reports indicating that he is keen on joining the North Londoners and linking up with Jose Mourinho (Fanatik via Sport Witness).
Burnley (Hurriyet) and West Brom (Fanatik) are also said to have identified Muriqi as an option, with the latter believed to have made signing the striker their main priority if they get promoted to the top flight.
However, the 26-year-old has now revealed that his future lies in Fenerbahce’s hands and that he is happy to see out his contract at the club.
“I have a three-year contract and everything depends on the club. Fenerbahce gives the decision.
“First comes the request of the club. I’ll do my best to stay until the end of my contract.”

That sounds like a diplomatic answer rather than an admission of his desire to stay. It does look as if Fenerbahce would be willing to sell Muriqi this summer in order to raise some funds but I doubt if he is on the top of our wish list. While there is no doubt that he would be a useful backup to Kane, the likes of Arkadiusz Milik or Patrik Schick will come with less risk as they are proven at the top level.
