DONE DEAL: Lazio announce signing of Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi

Lazio have announced the signing of Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi.

The centre-forward moves from Istanbul after one season, contributing 15 goals in 32 matches, for a reported total of €20m.

Muriqi joins for an initial fee of 17.5 million euros, the Turkish side said on Tuesday.

The fee could rise to 20 million euros with add-ons dependent on future results, the Turkish club added.

Fenerbahce also negotiated a sell-on fee of 5% of a future transfer fee should Lazio sell Muriqi to another club.

The 26-year-old Kosovo international scored 17 goals in 36 appearances for Fenerbahce.
