Borussia Dortmund could be interested in rivalling Arsenal for the signing of Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic, FootballDirectNews.com understands.
The Bundesliga giants are on the lookout for new signings upfront this summer, as the exit of star striker Robert Lewandowski on a free transfer to rivals Bayern Munich was already confirmed back in January.
Jurgen Klopp’s side have been linked with a whole host of names to replace the prolific Polish forward, and Vucinic could now be among the club’s main targets as he looks likely to be made available by Juventus.
The Serie A champions have plenty of competition for places upfront at the moment with Carlos Tevez, Fernando Llorente, Fabio Quagliarella and loan signing Pablo Osvaldo to choose from, and Vucinic has slipped down in the pecking order this season.
The Montenegro international was reportedly close to joining Arsenal in the winter, while Inter Milan were also credited with an interest, and several clubs could now be in for him again. It remains to be seen where Vucinic himself would favour a move to, but an Emirates Stadium insider confirmed that Dortmund were looking like being their main rivals for his signarure at the moment.
