Spurs make Muriqi move

Tottenham Hotspur have made an official bid for West Brom -linked striker Vedat Muriqi, according to reports.

Turkish outlet A Spor claims the Premier League outfit have offered €5m for the Fenerbahce hit-man, who has been connected with clubs across Europe.

Jose Mourinho was left shorted handed in attack for large parts of this campaign when Harry Kane suffered an injury on New Year’s Day.

The Portuguese coach is now looking to address the issue and is hoping a deal can be struck for Muriqi.

A Spor claim Lazio and Napoli are also interested in the Kosovo international and even say Lazio have contacted the player’s agent, Haluk Canatar, to make their interest known.

Muriqi’s contract with Fenerbahce expires in 2023 and Albion have also been credited with an interest – although all the speculation has seen a wide variation in fees.

The Baggies were claimed to be targeting an £18m move, while Fenerbahce are said to be holding out for an offer of €25m. He was also linked with Aston Villa in the last transfer window.

Arsenal join Vida race

Arsenal are considering a summer move for Besiktas centre-back Domagoj Vida, according to reports.

Turkish outlet Aksam claim the experienced defender could be available for €10m given the club’s financial situation.

Vida has been linked with both Aston Villa and West Brom – and intriguingly with Liverpool with Jurgen Klopp claimed to be thinking about him as support for Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

It’s Albion that have been most extensively credited with an interest though largely, it seems, on the basis of Slaven Bilic’s links with Besiktas.

The Baggies head coach is a former boss of the Super Lig outfit and is regularly claimed to be interested in players based in Turkey by their domestic press.

Vida should be familiar to England fans after his stellar showing in the 2018 World Cup with Croatia.

Robinson slams PPG proposals

Using a points-per-game system to decide promotion and relegation in the Championship would be ‘unfair’.

That’s according to former Tottenham and England goalkeeper Paul Robinson, who feels the EFL would face a major backlash if they called the final table as it stands now.

The EFL have already confirmed league standings will be decided using PPG if the remaining fixtures are not played after League Two clubs voted to curtail their campaign.

If the same method was used to settle the Championship, West Bromwich Albion and Leeds United would be promoted to the Premier League.

But Robinson told Football Insider : “No matter what you decide there is going to be somebody that is unhappy. Someone is going to have to step up and make a decision for everyone to follow.

“If player safety cannot be guaranteed and players refuse to play then there needs to be a committee or a panel that gets a consensus of opinion.

“They have to be big enough and brave enough to make a decision. You are not going to keep everybody happy.

“The points per game one is a real bone of contention in the Championship. It would be very harsh and unfair and Lee Bowyer’s comments highlighted that perfectly. But at some point, a decision needs to be made.”
