Spurs fans may soon be getting the news that they’ve waited for as the race to sign a striker seems to be hotting up. While we may not land Emmanuel Adebayor, Harry’s comments yesterday look to be a clear indication of the club’s intent to land a signature before the season starts.
So if it’s not going to be Adebayor, could it be Mirko Vucinic? Tottenham have been linked with the Roma striker on and off for the last few months but having fallen out of favour in Italy, it seems that he could definitely be available this summer at a price of around £15m.
Vucinic is 27 and has played in Italy for the last nine years where he averages around a goal every three games, despite often being deployed on the left wing for Roma. At international level, he has 24 caps for Montenegro scoring 11 times.
So he has the type of record that suggests he could score heavily in the premiership but one worrying aspect of the story is the claim that he has fallen out with fans due to his ‘poor attitude and body language’
For the time being, we await any developments, but the chase for a senior striker may finally be on.
