Tottenham have made an official offer for Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi, according to reports in Turkey.
Earlier this month, we relayed a report suggesting Spurs were preparing a bid for the 25-year-old, who has scored 11 goals in 17 appearances across all competitions so far this season, including 10 goals in 16 league games.
And now, Turkish journalist Ferudun Nigdelioglu (as relayed by Sport Witness) claims Fenerbahce have received offers for Muriqi from Tottenham and Burnley. He suggests the Super Lig giants now face a ‘difficult decision’ regarding the future of their star striker.
Muriqi is out of contract in the summer of 2023, so Fenerbahce are under no pressure to sell him at a reduced price. His valuation has likely risen in recent months following an impressive display for Kosovo against England in the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign.
Since Fernando Llorente left for Napoli in the summer, Spurs have lacked a capable back-up centre-forward, although Jose Mourinho is known to be a fan of teenager Troy Parrott.
In any case, it may be wise for Tottenham to look at more experienced goalscorers, and Muriqi would arguably fit the bill despite never having played in the Premier League before.
