Spurs target experiences Serie A striker on six month loan deal…
Tottenham will try to loan experienced Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic when the transfer window opens in January, reports the Daily Star.
Spurs want to strengthen the forward areas of the squad, as £26m summer signing Roberto Soldado has not yet found his Premier League feet. The Spanish 28-year-old has only scored four Premier League goals, three of which were from the penalty spot.

Although Tottenham do not currently have a full-time manager, the deal is still possible as the club’s director of football Franco Baldini has close links with Italian clubs.
Vucinic is a 30-year-old forward who joined from Roma for £15m two years ago, but has struggled to get in the team this year with the likes of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente ahead of him in the pecking order. The Montenegrin international has only made five appearances in Serie A in 2013/14, where he’s scored just one goal.
Jermain Defoe has been linked with a move to the MLS, so Vucinic could act as an immediate replacement, until Spurs potentially re-enter the transfer market for a bigger name forward next summer.
Although Emmanuel Adebayor has been recalled by interim boss Tim Sherwood, his long term future at the club similarly remains in doubt, so a short term deal for Vucinic to join the White Hart Lane outfit until the end of the season could suit all parties.
