Muriqi Wants to Stay With Lazio Despite Pressing From Fenerbahce

Lazio forward Vedat Muriqi wants to continue his adventure in Rome, despite a disappointing debut season in Serie A.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the Turkish media are convinced that the 27-year-old Kosovan forward is keen for a return to Fenerbahçe, where he scored 15 goals in 32 Super Lig games in his only season in Istanbul.

Sporting director Igli Tare is still betting on Muriqi to succeed. He is hoping that the Kosovan will find more success in his second season at the club, continuing a trend that has happened with some of his other signings.

Muriqi, who is contracted to Lazio until 2025, made 27 Serie A appearances this campaign, for a total of 821 minutes. In that time, he scored just one goal.
