Vucinic: Waiting to learn if he is still wanted at Roma after being linked with Blackburn and Juventus
Mirko Vucinic's agent has confirmed English clubs have shown an interest as the striker's future at Roma remains in the balance.
Roma are still to decide whether the Montenegro international fits into their plans next season and Blackburn Rovers have been linked with an ambitious £12million bid.
However, reports claim Juventus are likely to win the race for Vucinic if the player is sold by Roma over the summer.
Vucinic's agent Alessandro Lucci acknowledged he has spoken to Juventus, but that there is still plenty to discuss regarding his future at Stadio Olimpico.
"It's not news that two English clubs are interested in Vucinic, but it must firstly be understood whether the relationship with Roma is definitely over," Lucci told Sky Italia. "Only in that case will the alternatives be taken into consideration.
"For the moment we are only in the first phase. It's not the right moment to talk about Vucinic and other clubs.
"He feels good in Rome, he has friends and he has his home and the will to stay, but in football it happens that something can break.
"It's true I met Juventus, but we spoke about many players. They got information, but for this to become a negotiation there is a lot to do."
