Takvim claim Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho is pushing hard for Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi, despite reported interest from Lazio and Napoli.

The Turkish newspaper claim Tottenham are ready to up their proposal for the 26 year old, and are willing to offer slightly more than €15m to sign the player. There have been recent reports Fener would accept offers in this region.

It’s stated Mourinho is directly behind the pursuit of the Kosovo international and has been pressing the Tottenham board to make an offer for the player. Spurs were said to be interested in signing the attacker before the arrival of the Portuguese coach, and had been linked with him last year.

This week we covered claims from Turkey that despite strong interest from Italy, Muriqi’s preference is to play in England if he leaves Fenerbahce.

The former Caykur Rizespor player has made 28 appearances this season, scoring 15 goals. His contract with the Yellow Canaries will expire at the end of June 2023.
