Two days ago, La Lazio Siamo Noi reported Leeds United have registered their interest to sign Lazio’s Vedat Muriqi.
The striker is not relied upon by Maurizio Sarri this season, but continues to draw interest from elsewhere.
Another report from La Lazio Siamo Noi states the Kosovo international is one of the players who can leave this month because a ‘sale is required’ for the Biancocelesti.
The player never settled in Rome and will try to change clubs as early as January. There was talk of return to Turkey, while he is also liked in England, where Marcelo Bielsa’s side have ‘actually moved’ for Muriqi.
Leeds would ‘push to bring’ the attacker to the Premier League ‘immediately’. It’s claimed there has been ‘significant progress’ in the negotiations, but a total agreement is yet to be reached. The formula for the transfer would be ‘loan with redemption’ set at €8m.
The difference between the two clubs is down to the transfer formula. Lazio want to include the obligation to buy, while Leeds are not in favour of having this.
Despite the current situation, there is still hope the two clubs can reach a total agreement in the coming days as the track taking Muriqi to Elland Road ‘heats up’.
