Muriqi is an ideal centre forward who can hold the ball up well and bring his teammates into play. He is also an aerially dominant striker while being adept at supplying through balls and finishing.
Muriqi’s contract with Fenerbahce runs till 2023 and the Turks will be in a strong position to get the maximum for the striker.
Premier League rivals Burnley are also said to be in contention for the player’s signature (h/t Football London).
Ever since Fernando Llorente departed, Spurs have been short of quality options to back up Harry Kane. Muriqi would prove to be an experienced alternative to the England captain when necessary.
