Spurs could try their luck for 17-goal frontman


Much has been made of Harry Kane in recent weeks.

Will the Tottenham striker depart or will he stay in north London? Some claims suggest that he'll walk through the exit door.

However, Daniel Levy seems intent on keeping him at Spurs.

Whether he leaves could influence a great deal at the club. Arkadiusz Milik has been linked with a switch but will only join if the club if Kane departs.

However, there is a new striker entering the fray.

Tottenham have been interested in Vedat Muriqi in recent weeks and it's thought they could now try their luck to sign him in the summer.

That comes after Spurs had a bid rejected for the forward in the January transfer window.

Currently at Fenerbahce, it's though the club offered €19m (£17.2m) to the Turkish outfit before it was turned down.


At the time, his side were looking for a fee in the region of €28m (£25.3m), a price Spurs weren't willing to match.

However, Fenerbahce are said to be willing to reduce their asking price ahead of the summer window. 

After previously walking away from negotiations, Spurs could well return to the table for the 6 foot 4 giant.


GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

Having scored 17 goals this season, Muriqi clearly knows where the back of the net is.

However, it's difficult to see him live up to the huge expectations thrown on strikers at Tottenham given Kane's form down the years.

You only need to look at players like Cenk Tosun to realise how tough it is to cut the mustard after moving from the Turkish Super Lig to the Premier League.

He has scored just ten times in the top-flight, failing to recreate the form that made him so popular in Turkey.

Muriqi is a different player but it certainly doesn't bode well for a player of his ilk. A cut-price deal could be on the cards but Spurs are surely better off putting their faith in youngster Troy Parrott.

The Irishman has struggled for game time under Jose Mourinho but deserves his chance after netting 11 in 11 outings across first-team and academy competition.

Rather than spending money on someone who is an unknown quantity at the elite level, they'd be better off saving money and trusting Parrott.

After all, Spurs, like other clubs, have been hit harshly from an economical standpoint following COVID-19.
