According to the Daily Star, United and Spurs both sent scouts to watch him face the Three Lions in the Euro 2020 qualifier last week.

The 25-year-old scored from the penalty spot in the second half as Gareth Southgate's side beat Kosovo 5-3 at St Mary's Stadium.

United are now in the running for his signature as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his attack following the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

Muriqi joined Fenerbahce for £3.1million in July after scoring 17 goals and adding eight assists for Caykur Rizespor last season.

And he has attracted a wide range of interest after scoring two times in his first three matches for the Super Lig side this season.

Italian club Napoli have also been linked to the 25-year-old.
