CSKA Moscow have officially submitted an offer for Lazio forward Vedat Muriqi.

As reported by Russian media outlet Sport24 earlier today, the Moscow side are incredibly keen to acquire the 27-year-old Kosovan forward this month and so have formally submitted an offer to the Biancocelesti for the player.

The Biancocelesti are now evaluating the offer, but they cannot take too long as the departure of Muriqi is what would allow them to sign a new backup striker. Only 16 days remain in the transfer window, so updates are expected over the coming days.

The 27-year-old Muriqi has made 14 appearances across all competitions this season, for a total of 313 minutes. In that time, he has provided one assist.
