£18m Spurs striker target 'cleared for move' - reports

Published Add your comment

Roma are reportedly willing to sell Tottenham Hotspur striker target Mirko Vucinic this summer.

The Montenegro international is thought to be one of the players heading for an exit from the Eternal City following the arrival of Luis Enrique as manager in June, with the Daily Mirror reporting that Spurs will be one of the clubs offered the player after he was 'cleared for a move'.

It was reported in the same paper last week that Harry Redknapp was 'closing in' on a move for the player, although the 'staggering' £18 million valuation is thought to be a major stumbling block for all interested parties.

With club supremo Walter Sabatini in London, reportedly attempting to negotiate a deal with Arsenal over Gael Clichy, Roma are willing to speak with both Tottenham Hotspur and Blackburn Rovers over a move for Vucinic. Juventus are also believed to be interested in the player.

Redknapp is known to be in the market for a striker at White Hart Lane, with Pablo Osvaldo, Didier Drogba and Leandro Damiao all speculatively placed on the Spurs radar in recent weeks.


Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko have both been linked with summer exits from Tottenham Hotspur, whilst doubt has also been placed over the future of Jermain Defoe in north London in recent weeks.

Any chance of a move for the 27-year-old from the Stadio Olimpico would hinge of Spurs' ability to negotiate a lower price for the player, with £12 million a potentially acceptable figure for both clubs, again according to the Daily Mirror.
