Tottenham look to Roma for an attacking Plan B

The Metro is reporting that Harry Redknapp is considering a move for Roma forward Mirko Vucinic as an alternative to Emmanuel Adebayor.

Tottenham boss Redknapp is prepared to swoop for Vucinic if he can’t broker a loan deal for his prime target Adebayor.

Manchester City are keen to sell the troublesome striker with Spurs only interested in a year long loan deal although the players astronomical wages will prove to be a problem.

Redknapp is keen to bring in a striker before the transfer window closes and Vucinic is his new target.

Roma value the striker at around £15 million and although he has fell out of favour with the clubs fans the management are keen to keep him at the Stadio Olimpico.

Montenegrin Vucinic has asked to leave the Serie A giants after he came in for criticism from the supporters for his poor attitude and body language despite scoring 10 goals last season.

Spurs are still interested in the 27-year-old despite question marks over his temperament.

Redknapp is eager to bring in the talented frontman to White Hart Lane and is confident he can turn him into a deadly Premier League goal scorer.

If the deal does go ahead it’s likely Redknapp will have to sell either Peter Crouch or Jermaine Defoe to finance the move for Vucinic.
