Vedat Muriqi TEAMtalk

Tottenham reportedly sent representatives to watch Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi in action for Kosovo over the weekend.

Turkish outlet Sabah claims that the 25-year-old has attracted interest from Mauricio Pochettino’s men after starting the 2019/20 campaign in fine form.

However, Tottenham are not alone in monitoring the striker, with Serie A trio Lazio, Fiorentina and Napoli also scouting Muriqi during Kosovo’s 2-1 win over the Czech Republic.

Scouts could also be in attendance again when Kosovo take on England in Southampton in their latest Euro 2020 qualifier.

However, the report adds that Fenerbahce are unlikely to let the striker go without a fight in January and will hold out for a large bid.

Muriqi only arrived at Fenerbahce this summer in a €3.5million deal from Caykur Rizespor, but has scored twice in the opening three Super Lig games of the season.
