Tottenham scouts to take in England clash as they eye striker

Tottenham will reportedly send a scout to watch Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi when England head to Kosovo on Sunday.

Muriqi has been linked with several Premier League clubs in recent months, having impressed for club and country this season, but Fanatik claims that Spurs are very keen on the player.

The 25-year-old attacker, who is also a reported target for Atletico Madrid and Lazio, continued his fine form when he scored two goals on Friday as Fenerbahce beat Kasimpasa. The Yellow Canaries are now 2nd in the Turkish Super Lig after 11 games.

The Kosovo international has scored seven times for his club in this term and Fanatik adds that while Tottenham are keen on landing the player, Fenerbahce want to keep him until at least the end of the season.

Claims of Spurs interest had appeared to quieten down, but with Mauricio Pochettino’s men struggling domestically it would appear that a move for a new striker to either partner or back up Harry Kane is very much on the cards in January.
