Lazio forward Vedat Muriqi has returned to Rome and suggested that he won’t be re-joining Fenerbahce this summer.

As reported by Italian media outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi earlier today, the 27-year-old Kosovan forward spent two days in Istanbul to meet up with some old friends and give an interview but flew back to Rome this morning at around 6:30 am.

He confirmed to a Fenerbahce fan in the airport that he wouldn’t be joining the Super Lig side, saying:

There is nothing with Fenerbahce and I will most likely stay at Lazio.

Lazio are open to talks regarding Muriqi but they would want at least a loan with an obligation to buy attached, worth around €13-14 million, something no one has come close to so far.

Muriqi will join coach Maurizio Sarri and the squad in the pre-season retreat in Marienfeld, Germany, and it’s highly likely that he’ll be part of the team next season.
