It’s nearly Christmas in the Football Transfer Tavern and Tottenham supporters in the bar are well into the festive spirit following their morale boosting victory away at Southampton yesterday.
Now their good mood has been improved further by the latest reports from the Daily Star who suggest that managerless Spurs are planning to recruit Juventus striker Mirko Vucinic on loan in January.
Although the club is without a manager following the departure of Andre Villas-Boas last week, this will not end the proposed deal, which is being spearheaded by technical director Franco Baldini.
The 30-year-old Montenegro international forward, who has two years left on his contract with the Serie A club, could now move to White Hart Lane as he seeks first team football.
Vucinic has been with the Old Lady since signing from Roma in 2011 but has struggled for games this term after the arrivals of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente at the Turin club, which has led to suggestions he could sent out on loan when the transfer window opens next month.
Tottenham are certainly seeking more firepower with Jermain Defoe expected to leave for the MLS while, despite his impressive brace yesterday, the future of Emmanuel Adebayor is still uncertain.
This could see interim manager Tim Sherwood viewing Vucinic as a short-term solution to his attacking woes.
Will this potential loan deal represent good business for Tottenham? Let us know your thoughts below.
