Vedat Muriqi was repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League when he was excelling in Turkey for Fenerbahce.
Multiple sides were linked, but in the end he ended up swapping the Super Lig for Serie A, and signed for Lazio in September 2020.
Things haven’t gone according to plan in Rome and the striker is far from the hero status he enjoyed whilst in Turkish football.
Hull City were first linked with a move this month, and then Leeds United were brought into the picture. West Bromwich Albion then joined the pair, and it’s now the Baggies receiving the most attention in the Italian media.
Corriere della Sera reports West Brom are ‘not letting go’ of the potential January signing.
CSKA Moscow are also thought to be keen on the player, and it’s insisted Lazio are looking for a loan which has a purchase obligation, rather than just an option for whichever club takes him.
Last week, Muriqi’s wife made it clear the family misses Turkey hugely, returning to Istanbul whenever they get the chance. That would suggest the player would prefer a move there over West Brom or other options, but he may not have that choice.
