Vedat Muriqi agent hints Man Utd, Spurs interest: But Italy the priority

The agent of Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi admits a move to Italy will be considered ahead of England.

Manchester United, Leicester and Tottenham are all being linked with Muriqi, along with Napoli and Lazio.

Agent Haluk Canatar told TMW: "Surely he is a player who has shown himself and who is attracting the interest of several top clubs: there are negotiations, we will see how they will go on, without going too far."

Asked if the Premier League is the priority, he added: "It's not for sure. Indeed, I can tell you that right now his priority would be to play in Italy.

"Also for a cultural factor if we want: he is Kosovar, and therefore Albanian in origin. In these difficult days, we have seen how close the link between Italy and Albania is. Coming to our country would be his first choice."
