Manchester United have had a 25 million (£21.1 million) offer for Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi rejected, according to Turkish source Fotospor.
The Red Devils are light in options in the final third after Marcus Rashford was ruled out for an extended period of time, with the clock ticking on the Old Trafford club’s chance of landing a stop-gap or reinforcement.
United have Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood to call upon in the striker position, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the club’s supporters would surely love an additional specialist centre forward to join the ranks before the January transfer window closes on Friday night.
The latest report suggests that the Red Devils have seen their approach for Muriqi turned down by Fenerbahce, with the Istanbul giants not open to parting company with their talismanic attacker.
The reported United target has scored 12 Super Lig goals in 18 outings this season and has also impressed for Kosovo in international football.
Adding a specialist number nine to Solskjaer’s squad would certainly be a boost in the Red Devils’ hopes of finishing in the top four this season, but an increased offer will need to be made for that man to be Muriqi.
