Vucinic has been linked with a move away from Juve for some time.

Tottenham and Everton are locked in a battle to sign Juventus forward Mirko Vucinic, according to reports in Italy.

The 30-year-old has found first team action hard to come by this season thanks to the presence of Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez as well as injury, and started just four league games.

He's almost certain to leave Turin in the summer, and according to Tuttosport, both Everton and Tottenham are in the race for his signature.

Both clubs are likely to be in the market for a new striker this summer - and interestingly they could be gearing up for a battle over another forward too.

Romelu Lukaku has spent this season on loan at Goodison Park from Chelsea where he's impressed, scoring 15 goals in 31 league appearance.

It's believed that Everton are pushing to sign the Belgian permanently - although they could well face opposition from Tottenham.

Lukaku's agent has previously revealed that he's held informal talks with Spurs over a potential move.

Everton rounded off a fine campaign with a 2-0 win against Hull on the last day of the season, helping them secure a club record points tally and 5th place in the Premier League. Tottenham finished three points back in 6th place, booking their place in the Europa League thanks to a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa at White Hart Lane.
