Vedat Muriqi: Lazio Make Offer for Fenerbahce Striker

According to Turkish news outlet Takvim, Lazio is said to have made an offer for Vedat Muriqi. The striker, currently playing for Fenerbache in the Turkish Süper Lig, has been long targeted by the Biancocelesti; rumours date back to this past summer when he was still owned by Çaykur Rizespor Kulübü. This was due to his brilliant 2018/19 campaign, where he netted 17 goals and assisted a further eight goals in 34 matches.

Following his summer move to Fenerbahce and his continued form, the Kosovo-Albanian’s value has continued to rise. As a result, the Turkish side is said to have set a €20 million price tag for his signature. In addition, there is said to be interest from Monaco, Leicester City, Aston Villa, and Tottenham – clubs with more financial resources than the Biancocelesti. However, this has not stopped the Italian side from making the first move.

Takvim reports that Lazio has submitted an official offer of €2.5 million for a loan with a right of redemption for the striker. While this seems a steep price for Lazio President Claudio Lotito to spend on a single player, Sporting Director Igli Tare might have a say in the potential transfer that could bring him to Rome.
