Lazio forward Vedat Muriqi is in Istanbul for personal reasons, not to sign for Fenerbahce.

As reported by Kosovan football journalist Arlind Sadiku on Twitter last night, the 27-year-old Kosovan forward is currently on a short holiday following the conclusion of the Biancocelesti’s pre-season training camp in Auronzo di Cadore earlier this week and is now in Turkey.

The 27-year-old Muriqi performed well in the pre-season training camp in Auronzo, with coach Maurizio Sarri working hard to ensure his adaption to the new tactical system. 

The 62-year-old Italian coach was also seen defending the player from fans, telling them that any negative comments or boos towards him would see them be kicked out of the facility.
