The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that Sanfrecce are likely to make a lucrative offer for Juric in a deal that would see him join the club in January.

Juric has attracted plenty of interest following his performances with the Wanderers, with a number of European clubs believed to be interested in his services.

The Wanderers knocked back an offer from Russian Premier League side Torpedo Moscow last month, the same club Brisbane Roar wingback Ivan Franjic joined in earlier in the year.

Sydney-based player agent Tadashi Miyashita told the newspaper that Sanfrecce are prepared to splurge on the ever-improving marksman.

“I’ve been speaking with Sanfrecce and they have asked me to find out his details because they are interested,” he told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“They are looking for a big, strong No.9. They really like him and will be willing to pay him good money.

“I was speaking to their coach (Hajime Moriyasu) recently and he definitely wants to make an offer for Tomi, 100 per cent.”

Juric’s form over the past 12 months has seen him enter the Socceroos setup, with the striker unlucky to miss out on a spot in Ange Postecoglou’s 2014 World Cup squad.

Sanfrecce fans will likely remember Juric from its AFC Champions League campaign, where the former Adelaide United man scored a pivotal spot-kick in the Round of 16 clash against his potential future employers.
