Two Turkish Giants Interested in Lazio Loanee at Real Mallorca

Leeds are reportedly targeting two Serie A players, Lazio's Vedat Muriqi and Torino's Ola Aina.  Both could move in January.

Vedat Muriqi has resumed his loan spell at Real Mallorca after failing to find a foothold at Lazio this season. its made Biancocelesti Making his debut in 2020, the Kosovo international failed to repay Lazio’s €20m investment to Fenerbahce in his name. He was loaned to Spain in the January 2022 transfer window and Mallorca have the option to buy him permanently in the summer.

However, there is no shortage of applicants. Corresponding La Gazzetta dello Sport (about Lazio Siamo Noi) Turkish giants Galatasaray and Fenerbahce have both expressed interest in signing the 27-year-old Lazio forward.

With Maurizio Sarri destined to return to Lazio in the summer, he cannot be expected to hand over the starting position as a striker to Muriqi, so a transfer seems like the only productive choice going forward. Add to that his €6 million transfer market value will certainly provide some financial relief to the coffers of Capital Club after a few years ravaged by a pandemic.

Muriqi endured a pretty torrid first season at Lazio, scoring just two goals in 34 appearances before going on a duck after 15 appearances this season.

He has now scored more goals in 11 appearances for Real Mallorca than in his two seasons in the sky-blue colors of Lazio.
