Tottenham are prepared to offer €20m for Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi as they continue efforts to find an alternative to Harry Kane according to the Takvim.

Per the source, Spurs have set aside €20m for the Kosovo international who they view as a striker who can serve as a backup for Kane and rotate with the England international.

Tottenham lack depth upfront and have come unstuck over recent weeks due to not having cover for Kane.

Spurs striker problem was exacerbated further following injury to Son Heung-min.

The Premier League outfit have been tracking Muriqi for most of the season.

Turkish-Football reported that Spurs scouted Muriqi at least six-times over his first six games this term.

The 1.95m striker was urged to stay at Fenerbahce in January after the Super Lig club turned down all offers for their star man.

Muriqi stayed at the Yellow-Navies as his club were at the time involved in the title race.

However, with Fenerbahce dropping out of the race and looking unlikely to secure European football next term they could be forced to sell.

Fenerbahce are currently 7th in the league table, nine points off a top-four spot.

The Istanbul giants could book a place in European competition if they win the Turkish Cup.

They will face Trabzonspor next in the semi-final second leg after losing the first game 2-1 away from home.

The Yellow Canaries are facing mounting debts and will have to sell players to manage their precarious financial situation.

Muriqi has directly been involved in 21 goals this season scoring 15 times and providing six assists in all competitions.

The powerful striker has scored eight times in 23 games for Kosovo.

Muriqi scored and provided two assists in the 5-3 loss to England last September in the Euro 2020 qualifier.
