Juventus put Spurs transfer target up for sale

Published 1 Comments

Tottenham have been given the green light to bid for Juventus forward Mirko Vuninic, according to talkSPORT.

The defending Serie A champions have put the Tottenham transfer target up for sale - with Spurs and Newcastle reportedly set to go head-to-head to sign him in January.

Juventus will sell him for £7.5m following the arrival of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente. The two summer arrivals have pushed the Montenegrin down the pecking order at the Juventus Stadium, and the Italian giants are willing to cut him loose for a reduced fee.

Vucinic has started just three Serie A games this season, and the player's agent has reportedly approached a couple of Premier League teams to find out their interest.

The report claims Newcastle and Spurs are the two teams, although that has not been confirmed.

Andre Villas-Boas is expected to strengthen his attacking options in January, with the White Hart Lane club struggling to score goals.

Despite the acquisition of Roberto Soldado, Tottenham have scored just nine Premier League goals and with Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor linked with moves of their own, Villas-Boas could turn to Vucinic to supplement his attack.
