Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a summer swoop on Roma striker Mirko Vucinic.
The Montenegro international has been on the Barclays Premier League radar several times in the past, with Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson one of those to take an interest in the 27-year-old forward in the past.
However, the Daily Mirror reports that Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is 'closing in' on the former Lecce star, with the north London outfit monitoring the situation with regards to Vucinic's availability.
The striker recently claimed he was happy in the Eternal City, but that hasn't stopped Tottenham Hotspur's interest from growing as Harry Redknapp scours the globe for a new striker.
Pablo Osvaldo, Didier Drogba and Leandro Damiao have all been linked with a move to White Hart Lane in recent weeks, with the former Pompey boss eager to strengthen his attacking ranks at Spurs.
Redknapp is also braced for player exits, with Robbie Keane and Roman Pavlyuchenko reportedly on their way. Jermain Defoe is also being linked with an exit amidst claims that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is keen to sign the striker.
Manchester United were heavily linked with a move for the player back in 2009, although Vucinic rejected a move away from the Stadio Olimpico to continue plying his trade in Serie 'A' at the time.
"It's certainly pleasing that a great club like that are interested in me. But I have only heard about it from the newspapers," said Vucinic in reference to the Manchester United interest two years ago.
With the Barclays Premier League champions no longer interested, Tottenham Hotspur appear to be the most likely destination for the player should he move to England, and the Mirror claims £12 million could be enough to land the player.
