Manchester United and Tottenham target eyed by Turkish giants

Published Add your comment

Turkish outfit Fenerbahce are eyeing a January switch for Manchester United and Tottenham target Mirko Vucinic, according to sources cited by talkSPORT.

30-year-old Vucinic joined current club Juventus from Serie A rivals Roma during the summer of 2011 but has found first-team opportunities somewhat difficult to come by this season as former Premier League star Carlos Tevez and Spaniard Fernando Llorente have been preferred by manager Antonio Conte.

Plenty of interest was reportedly shown for Vucinic during a notably frantic summer transfer window, with Premier League title-chasing duo Spurs and United - with the latter having subsequently endured a woeful start to the new domestic campaign - both linked with potential moves for the Montenegrin international.

Such a transfer never materialised, however, but speculation regarding the experienced frontman's future looks set to intensify once again as a result of Vucinic's bit-part role at the Juventus Stadium.

Indeed, according to unnamed Turkish sources cited by talkSPORT, Fenerbahce, who finished runners-up to bitter rivals Galatasaray in the Süper Lig last season, are plotting a swoop worth up to £10 million for the striker when the transfer window re-opens for business during the new year.
