Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi is not currently a transfer target for Tottenham, according to Football London.

Last month we relayed a report from Turkish outlet Sabah (as relayed by Sport Witness) that claimed Spurs are ready to make a £17.4 million offer for Muriqi as the Londoners step up their pursuit of a new deputy for Harry Kane.

Muriqi, who has scored 15 goals in 28 appearances across all competitions so far this season, may have caught the eye of Premier League fans when he found the net for Kosovo against England in a Euro 2020 qualifier last September.

But Football London believes the 26-year-old is ‘not a viable target’ for Tottenham as things stand, suggesting the club is looking at other alternatives to provide cover up front.

While Muriqi might have been ideal in terms of the type of player he is, perhaps Spurs are thinking about increasing their homegrown quota by looking closer to home for a new striker – Football London’s report mentions Brentford’s Ollie Watkins and Huddersfield’s Karlan Grant as possible targets.

However, they aren’t said to be definite targets, so it may be some time until we see another goalscorer come through the doors.
