Hull City dealt transfer blow



Hull City have been dealt a blow in their transfer pursuit of Lazio striker Vedat Muriqi, as per a recent report by Hull Live.

The Kosovo international is said to be keen on a move to the MKM Stadium this month, however it has now been revealed that the Serie A side are looking to recoup as much of the £14.5 million that they paid for the frontman as possible, thus dealing a big setback to Hull’s hopes of signing the player.

Grant McCann’s side would be looking to bring the striker in on an initial loan whilst also committing to having an option to buy the attacker inserted into the deal.

However Lazio are said to not be interested in any sort of temporary agreement as they bid to sell the player outright this month in order to recoup some of the money that they outlaid.

Adding to their attacking ranks is Hull’s biggest priority of the window, with the club’s prospective new owner, Acun Ilicali, being set to back them financially in the market once the takeover is complete.

The Verdict 

This is a slight blow for Hull, who were clearly really keen on signing Muriqi but at the same time they will surely have other targets in mind.

There are bound to be plenty of options out there, so it will all come down to what they can afford at this precise moment.

The takeover is sure to help things along nicely, so it is important that McCann gets his signings right in this window.

Securing Championship football for another season is the obvious priority but in the short term they need to be scoring a lot more goals than they have been doing, which means signing a new striker is a very big objective at the time of writing.
