Kosovo Football Federation president Agim Amedi has claimed Jose Mourinho’s Spurs are interested in signing Muriqi this summer.
However, it has been reported the Lilywhites will face stiff competition from Serie A sides Napoli and Lazio if they want to bring the Kosovan to North London in the upcoming transfer window.
The striker has put in a string of impressive performances for the Yellow and Navy Blues, having moved to the Sukru Saracoglu Stadium for just £3.15m last year, and he has scored 13 goals and created 5 assists in 25 games in the Super Lig for the Sarı Lacivertliler so far.
His contributions on the pitch have been noticed as the 26-year-old’s market value has risen to £8.55m via Transfermarkt.
As expected, many Spurs fans discussed the transfer news on social media, with one supporter dubbing Muriqi the “Kosovan Andy Carroll,” and another adding they would “rather get Mitrovic” from Championship side Fulham, a player who has also been linked with the club.
Have a read through some of the mixed reactions down below…

Is he good? Cos I’ve seen a few clips and he looks like the kosovan Andy carroll. Which might not be a bad thing but still

I’d take him in a heartbeat. Tough as nails, calm head, links up well, not injury prone like Carroll, oh… and he scores goals.

Tottenham fans, do you think Daniel Levy will splash the cash and bring Muriqi to England before the start of next season? Join the discussion in the comments section!
