MILAN - Juventus finally managed to sign
a new striker on Monday when they confirmed that Montenegro's
Mirko Vucinic was joining them from AS Roma for 15 million euros.
Juve, who had missed on out Sergio Aguero, who joined
Manchester City from Atletico Madrid, and Giuseppe Rossi, after
Villarreal decided they did not want to sell him, had been
competing with Tottenham Hotspur for the 27-year-old.
"Juventus have finalised the agreement with AS Roma to
acquire on a permanent basis the sporting rights of footballer
Mirko Vucinic," said the club, adding that the transfer fee
would be paid over three years.
Vucinic was at AS Roma for five seasons having previously
played at Lecce.
He has been a regular for Montenegro since the team was
formed in 2007 following the split with Serbia and has scored 11
goals in 22 appearances.
Juventus finished a disappointing seventh in Serie A last
season and missed out on European competition.
They have since replaced coach Luigi Delneri with former
midfielder Antonio Conte and last month splashed out 37 million
euros to make four players - Alessandro Matri, Fabio
Quagliarella, Simone Pepe and Marco Motta - permanent signings.
Two weeks ago, they strengthened the midfield with the
signing of Chile's versatile Arturo Vidal.
