According to a report from Aspor earlier today, the Istanbul side are searching for a forward who can guarantee goals and understand the league, with the current strikers not performing up to standard in the Turkish league.

Out of their forwards, Mbwana Samatta has scored five, Papiss Cisse has four and Mame Thiam has eight, bringing the total to 17.

Last season, Muriqi scored 15 goals in 32 Süper Lig appearances for Fenerbahce, and so the Turkish side are looking to bring him back after only one year apart.

The 26-year-old Muriqi has struggled in Rome, first with his fitness and then a lack of consistent minutes, and has only scored once in 18 Serie A appearances this season.

The Kosovan forward would be happy to return to Turkey, helping Fenerbahce’s case, but so far nothing concrete has occurred. All that can be said for certain now is that Muriqi’s future in Rome cannot be taken for granted.
