Mirko Vucinic is a name that’s appeared here and in many other columns in relation with a move to Spurs but in a slow international week, the media is widely tipping the Juventus striker to be available for transfer when the window reopens in January.
Vucinic hit 30 last month and in his two years at Juve, has continued with his overall goal scoring record of around one in every three games. However, the arrival of both Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente over the summer has seen the player start just three games in Serie A and although there have been reports that Llorente would be the man to go, the suggestion now is that the Spaniard will stay.
That leaves Vucinic as the odd man out and in view of his age, it’s reported that Juventus could let him go for a ‘cut price’ £7.5m.
If you believe the press, Tottenham will definitely be in for a new striker when January comes but is Mirko Vucinic the man to provide the clinical edge that’s been missing from much of our play this season?
