Spurs lack depth upfront when first-choice forward Kane is out injured.

The report also claims Burnley are prepared to offer €22m for the 25-year-old Fenerbahce ace.

Additionally, Lazio, Fiorentina and Aston Villa are also reportedly interested.

The Turkish media have really been pushing Muriqi transfer stories recently and Fenerbahce have made no secret that there is interest.

A Yellow Canaries source did inform Turkish-Football that Tottenham scouted Muriqi for his first six games sending a club official to Turkey.

Spurs stopped sending scouts afterward but have since returned to keeping tabs on the striker.

Additionally, Leicester City, West Ham and Aston Villa are among the sides who have sent scouts.

No comment was given regarding United and no formal offers have been received from any of the mentioned clubs.

Fenerbahce value their star man as being worth €30m and plan on breaking the Super Lig transfer record.

Muriqi has 13 goals and five assists in all competitions for the Yellow-Navies this season.

The 1.95m tall forward also has eight goals in 23 international caps for Kosovo.
