£10m Manchester United target on Spurs radar

Manchester United striker target Mirko Vucinic is being linked with a January move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Daily Star claims Spurs are hoping to bring the player to north London on loan next month, despite their current lack of a manager.

Andre Villas-Boas was relieved of his duties earlier in the month, with Tim Sherwood currently in temporary charge of the Tottenham Hotspur side.

That hasn't stopped the club and their transfer activity for the New Year, if the paper is to be believed, with a striker still firmly on Spurs' transfer agenda.

Roberto Soldado is yet to find top form since moving to the Premier League in the summer, whilst Jermain Defoe has been tipped to leave Tottenham Hotspur at the end of the season.

Vucinic, meanwhile, has been linked with a move to England in the past, with Manchester United among the suitors for the 30-year-old.

Indeed, talkSPORT reported back in October that the Red Devils faced a battle with a Turkish outfit for the signature, with £10million mooted as the fee to land the striker.

David Moyes already has a number of options in attack at Old Trafford, with Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez all vying for first team chances at Manchester United.

Vucinic would provide the champions with another option in attack, but they now face competition from a domestic rival if they still wish to sign the Montenegro international.
