Tottenham Show Interest In Former Arsenal Striker Target

Spurs to go after Juventus striker.

Check in to England vs Italy

Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a move for Juventus striker and one-time Arsenal target Mirko Vucinic, according to CalcioMercato.it.

The north London outfit are likely to bring in a new forward this summer after a highly disappointing first season in England from last summer’s £26m signing Roberto Soldado, who only managed six Premier League goals in the entire 2013/14 campaign, many of them coming from the penalty spot.

Vucinic has been linked with English clubs before, and reportedly came close to joining Tottenham’s local rivals Arsenal back in the January transfer window, though a move never materialised as he stayed put in Turin.

The former Roma man went on to win a third consecutive Scudetto with Juventus, but has found himself increasingly on the fringes of the first-team with the arrivals of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente last summer.

Still, the 30-year-old has been one of the most consistent goalscorers in the Italian top flight for a number of years now and remains a highly regarded talent, meaning a move to a big club before next season looks likely.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino now appears to be keen on him, and it is expected that the club will make a move for him in the coming months.
