Arsenal and Tottenham could fight to bring in Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic on a permanent deal for as little as £8million, if reports in the Daily Mirror are to be believed.
The source claims that representatives from the Gunners met with Juve’s director general, Beppe Moratta, over the New Year to discuss the possibility of a transfer for Vucinic, but the Turin club have told his Premier League suitors that any deal with have to be a permanent one.
This follows rumours that Arsene Wenger would take the Montenegrin star on a loan until the end of the season, but the Juventus aren’t keen on lettering him go on a temporary basis.
It’s thought that the Serie A champions are thought to be open to the idea of selling the 30-year-old since their failure to qualify for the Champions League knockout stages, and both north London clubs could take advantage of this.
Arsenal have been linked with a number of strikers as their search to provide support for Olivier Giroud continues, whilst Spurs are also looking to bolster their frontline.
